On Track for a Safe Summer
Shriners Hospitals for Children wants to keep children on track for a safe summer.
We all know that summer is a time of playground fun, camping, swimming and other outdoor activities.  But with 40 percent of all injury-related emergency room visits and 42 percent of all injury deaths happening between May and August,* summer is also a time of higher risk of serious childhood injuries.   Every year one in four kids ages 14 and younger will sustain an injury that requires medical attention.* The good news is that most of these injuries are preventable with education and simple precautions.
