Non-mobile children are defined as not yet rolling, crawling, cruising or walking independently or are older children who are not mobile because of a disability. Practitioners should include all children under 6 months.
The Bruising to Non-Mobile Children Protocol sets out to address the need for appropriate responses by Health Visitors, Doctors, GPs and other Health Professionals by requiring all professionals to refer bruising in non- mobile children for assessment by a Consultant Paediatrician and Social Care.
There are a range of participatory tools, including Signs of Safety, available from subscribing to the website https://practicetools.org/toolkits.
