Injuries in the home are preventable...
Nine million children visit an Emergency Room each year due to preventable injuries and 120,000 children are permanently disabled. 70% of those children are under the age of four. If a disease were killing our children at the rate reflected in these statistics, we would be outraged and would demand a cure. Yet, injuries are occurring like a major health epidemic.
