Routine domestic violence screenings can be a life-saver

A woman came into an emergency room in a large metropolitan hospital complaining of a sore throat. She was treated and released. She was not screened for domestic violence. It didn't occur to anyone to screen someone with such an obscure complaint. Several months later she was killed by her partner in a domestic violence-related homicide. Could screening for domestic violence have prevented her death?
