I work on an OB unit. We recently had a patient come in for observation following a domestic violence dispute. I found that our unit does not have a specific policy related to this with instructions on who we are to notify and/or file reports with. I spoke with my colleague from ED and she suggested that I post a thread so that I can see what others hospitals do as well to help me develope a specific policy to implement on our unit. What can you tell me about your hospital's policy on dealing with domestic violence patients and how you handle reporting in these cases?
