Does the child have a black eye, pupils of unequal
size, or scleral hemorrhage from trauma?
Does the child appear "overdressed" for the climate,
wearing long sleeves, a turtleneck sweater, long pants
and other heavy clothing in the heat of the summer?
This attempt to hide bruises or injuries on arms or
legs.
Is the child clean, tidy and apparently well nourished,
or dirty, disheveled because of neglect and
malnourishment?
Does it appear that there was an obvious delay in
seeking treatment?
