Making the Call in NAI: Bindu Bali at DFTB18


Bindu Bali is an Paediatric Emergency Medicine consultant at Sunshine Hospital in Melbourne and the very first doctor that Andy Tagg met when he started working in Australia. When not dealing with the children of the Western Suburbs she works with the Victorian Forensic Paediatric Medical Service (VFPMS).

We can all feel paralysed when dealing with a potential case of NAI but with a little bit of knowledge it can be a lot easier for us to pick up the phone. In the emergency department or on the ward it is not our job to diagnose NAI but it is our job to be vigilant and to look out for it.  Nikki Abela spoke about how not all long bone fractures are equal and Bindu highlights the importance of describing what you see, rather than what you think you see.
