Case Scenario: At approximately 18:30 hrs. a young woman, Lavinia Codona, was admitted to the hospital with complaints of severe abdominal pain. Lavinia appeared agitated, confused and in great pain.

Question 1

Ways in Which the Circumstances Could Have Been Avoided
Pregnancy amongst children falls under the categories of occurrences that can be

prevented (Rudolph et al., 2018). All society needs to do is to put in place specific measures
that will detect instances of child sexual abuse and exploitation. One way of doing this is by
having a functional children services department (Rudolph et al., 2018). Such a department
will monitor the activities of children and even make it their goal to consult with members of
the public to determine homes where children go through sexual abuse. In this case, the
department officers would have been tipped off concerning what was happening to Lavinia.
The personnel from this department would then have to visit her home to check her and
investigate what had happened before the situation becam...
