  • Nearly 1 in 3 abused children has been seen previously by a medical provider with an injury that was not recognized as abuse.
  • These injuries, known as “sentinel injuries”, are often minor – an isolated bruise or a small lesion to the mouth, for example.
  • Because they often appear so seemingly minor, however, these sentinel injuries may not be recognized as abuse.
