“Domestic Violence and Health Care: Best Practices in Action” offers an inside look at the best practices at highly regarded Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD. We follow doctors and nurses in the ER, the mother-baby unit, pre-op and other departments. They share candid observations about domestic violence prevention in medicine and offer specific, practical suggestions. We also speak with Colleen Moore, coordinator of Mercy’s family violence program, and go with her around the hospital and into the community. The video also offers a look into Mercy’s Sexual Assault Forensic Examination program, and the SAFE unit’s pioneering effort to bring forensic examination techniques into domestic domestic violence cases, including efforts to coordinate with the police department. Produced by an award-winning team of documentary film makers, the video is cinematic, fast paced and engaging.
