When children are abused by foster parents

When children are abused by foster parents

I click open the x-ray viewer.  After 4 years in emergency pediatrics, I am not really surprised that a tibia fracture underlies the bruised ankle I unexpectedly encountered on physical exam.  Yet I audibly gasp as the chest x-ray loads.  The torso in question belongs to a chubby little cherub of a 3-month-old in room 11, brought in for red eyes.  I begin to count the fractured ribs — 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  I pause.  That’s just the left side.
