“Neglect is the most common and deadliest form of child maltreatment” (Hornor, 2014, p. 186). After the case study presented, regarding 5 year old Amy, was analyzed there was apparent evidence that demonstrates signs of child neglect in regards to multiple factors. Amy’s case is not an isolated occurrence and in fact is more common than one might believe. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (2015), “an estimated 683,000 children in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico were determined to be victims of abuse or neglect. Nationally, 75.3 percent of victims experienced neglect”. This essay will discuss Amy’s case, the questions the nurse might ask, top nursing priorities, health education needs, interdisciplinary referrals, and the community health issues for the family.
4) Neglect Neglect has been described as the “most serious type of child maltreatment and the least understood” (Crittenden 1999: 67). It is the most common reason for inclusion on the child protection register in the UK.

Introduction Child neglect is a form of maltreatment. In other words, it is the failure of parents, guardians or caregivers to meet the child’s needs such as adequate supervision, clothes, shelter, food, health treatments, education and nurturing their emotional, physical, cognitive and mental development. In this paper, we will talk about early childhood neglect from ages birth to five years old, and the benefits of child welfare-supervised children 's participation in center-based Early Care and Education (ECE). Additionally, we will focus on an evidence-based intervention in which we will explore the program’s benefits and positive outcomes for the children that attend the program in contrast to the ones that do not. Moreover, we will identify the correct system of care and some of the programs within the tri-county area that might implement this intervention. Additionally, we will talk about the demographics of the children and setting of which intervention is best for them. Lastly, we will give an estimation of how many sessions are needed for the intervention to work, and what sorts of trainings might be necessary for the well-being of the child.
Children are our future. They will shape future generations to come and the way our society deals with difficulties. One difficulty that is currently being addressed is child neglect.

In this presentation, the different forms of child neglect discussed are the educational neglect, medical neglect, and emotional neglect experiences. For starters, educational neglect transpires when the caregiver or parent does not enroll the child in school nor encourages the child to attend school.

Problem Statement Child abuse and neglect is a significant problem in the United States that should demand direct attention. There are approximately three million child abuse reports made each year, and these reports involve more than six million children. Out of four to five children that die daily, 70 percent are under three years of age. There are 90 percent of cases involving of children who know who know their perpetrator.

The therapeutic and healing properties of music have been recognized throughout history. Rothrock (2011) stated that music is recognized as a way to decrease the physiologic and behavioral anxiety found in most surgical patients. Anxiety is a powerful emotion that can trigger physiological responses, cause stress, increase pain sensation and delay wound healing (Upton, 2014). Surgeons often prescribe medication to relieve anxiety preoperatively without consideration of an alternative intervention. Complementary interventions such as music therapy can provide a level of distraction, thus promoting a reduction in anxiety level (Comeaux, & Steele-Moses, 2013).
