At three years of age, in 1974, I was struck above the eye by a thrown dinner plate. The abuser brought me to Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, where she says I received 2 or 3 stitches. In my response to my question "Was anyone at the Children’s Hospital informed of how the injury occurred?" she answered, "No one asked and I didn’t say anything." I realize it was a long time ago, but this strikes me as implausible. Isn't how an injury occurred one of the first things health professionals would have needed to know in order to determine appropriate treatment? Apparently medical records only need to be kept for 10 years, so I may never know for sure what the hospital was told, but I assume the abuser lied about what happened to avoid a child abuse investigation. If there's a medical professional on this forum who was working around that era who can say if there's any possibility I could've received treatment without my parent having to say how the injury happened, that'd be helpful.
