Child abuse continues to go undetected by hospital-based health care providers because clues may exist exclusively in the child's home. Emergency personnel are in the unique position of being able to assess the home environment. An educational intervention was developed to increase the prehospital providers' awareness of how to assess, report, and document suspected child maltreatment based on findings in the home.
