Every ED and inpatient service must deal with domestic violence. Affecting all age groups, abuse can be devastating to both the patient and the family. Mandated reporting for professionals makes early identification and liberal referrals a critical aspect of every emergency medicine, in-hospital and ambulatory practice for any practicing clinician. Failure to report may have significant consequences for the clinician, financial and criminal, and more importantly the patient.
