Patient Safety and Abuse

Patient safety is of utmost importance. While you are completing an admission, you notice a number of unusual bruises and several abrasions on

the patient. After reviewing the module resources, consider how you would approach the topic with the patient. What barriers prohibit the

patient from opening up regarding the abuse, and how can you address these barriers through the assessment process? What is your responsibility

if you suspect abuse in Massachusetts as a mandated reporter?
