A young woman named Miya is brought to your clinic/emergency department by an older woman who mostly speaks for her. Miya appears to be around 15 years old and speaks in broken English. She is tearful, has old bruises on her neck and arms, and based on your immediate assessment, has a broken arm. Her companion claims that Miya is her niece, but on questioning them both further about Miya’s health history it becomes apparent that the “aunt” does not know her niece very well. Moreover, Miya seems afraid of her aunt.
