An important Shaken Baby judgment from earlier this year
This judgment made is very clear that the SBS triad can occur through a fall. (where the baby's head is bigger than normal).
There is still the question as to what is really evidence of a baby that has been harmed through shaking.
This comes back to the Evidenced Based Medicine Question.
Where James Munby is particularly good (he was the judge here) is in recognising the harm of care proceedings themselves.
What needs to happen is for the harm of care proceedings to be more fully recognised in the way that matters are handled.
The fact is that the system causes harm. What harm it prevents is less clear. Clearly it prevents some harm, but in many cases it is merely a futile way of enriching professionals.
