THE 14-year-old boy in A&E has clearly been stabbed. There is no doubt about it among the team treating him, but the teenager refuses to tell the truth. With medical staff required to report incidents such as this, young knife crime victims often concoct unconvincing stories. Paediatric consultant Dr John Criddle says: “We have a duty to notify police for serious injuries. That can put young people off talking to a doctor or nurse. He told us he’d fallen on broken glass, but we can always tell when the story is not quite right.” It’s something Dr Criddle, clinical lead of the children’s emergency department at central London’s St Thomas’ Hospital, is seeing regularly as a knife crime epidemic sweeps across Britain. Latest crime figures released yesterday revealed the UK murder rate has hit a ten-year high, with two homicides daily last year and more than 100 stabbings. But with a waiting room full of patients — around 27,000 children … [Read more...] about Stab victims, 14, refuse to admit they’ve been KNIFED and believe in the glitz and glamour of drill videos — inside A&Es desperate to save teenage lives

A PAIR of thrifty parents feed their son on food scavenged from BINS - saving £150 a month in the process. Chelsey Fleming, 25, and boyfriend Johnny, dodge cops and security guards every night as they break into supermarket bins to feed eight-month-old Griffin. The couple, from Georgia, US, claim that using food earmarked for landfill has saved them £150 a month in food bills alone. They even scavenge Christmas presents and toiletries - and sometimes sell their finds to friends and family.

Not content to simply patch up injuries, hospital-based violence intervention programs around the U.S. are helping to change the lives of survivors. By Nick Wing 11/23/2018 02:13 pm ET CHEVERLY, Md. ― When Che Bullock awoke in a hospital in August 2013, the first thing he felt was grateful to be alive. He’d been stabbed 13 times outside a nightclub in the Washington, D.C., area and taken by helicopter to a medical center, where doctors performed lifesaving surgery. Bullock’s sense of relief quickly faded, first into physical pain and anxiety, then into fear and finally into a rage toward his attackers. “It was kind of like they put a hit out on me,” said Bullock, now 30. He recalled friends coming to his hospital room to stand guard. Just days after the stabbing, Bullock had recovered enough to return home to the Washington neighborhood where he said he’d had a beef with the individuals who’d tried to kill him. Bullock was … [Read more...] about Hospitals Are Trying To Do What Politicians Haven’t: Stop Gun Violence
