Roswold Foundation for Injured Children offers child injury prevention and safety awareness classes for parents, young babysitters, and more. If you feel that your group or facility could benefit from child injury prevention and safety awareness classes, feel free to contact us at [email protected] or call us at 866-604-8744 to schedule your class. Accidental injuries are common occurrences in the home arising out of falls, drownings, burns and more. Frequent injuries also arise out of school athletics, especially concussion and should be handled appropriately.
There are steps we can all take to make our homes a safer place for our families, such as installing carbon monoxide detectors, using the back burners on stoves, and installing outlet covers. Children's Mercy reported that it treated more than 13,000 emergency room patients for injuries and the majority of those injuries are preventable through effective use of bike helmets, seat belts, and smoke detectors.
