|It wasn't quite like this|
Was it just the father present, the mother, both, or someone else when this happened?He anticipated these questions due to the nature of the injury. He did not anticipate being asked them repeatedly in different forms to see if his story remained the same.
Have they had any visitors recently?
Does she go to daycare?
Are there any male siblings?
Are there any female siblings that have had the same or similar experience?
Don't get me wrong, neither he, nor I, were upset that these questions were asked. We both agreed that the ER staff was totally justified in asking them to ensure it was truly an accident, and not an indicator of something more.
What we wondered was this:
Are these questions being asked more often lately due to the publicity from the Syracuse and Penn State debacles? Or have they always been asked like this?Neither of us have any experience with this, so I thought I'd post the question here and see if there are any of you who have been down this road or just have thoughts about it.
Does the media sway the medical communities' actions?I'd love to get your thoughts on these two questions.
