Safe and Sound

Children's Hospital at Erlanger Injury Prevention Program

  • At Children’s Hospital at Erlanger the leading cause of unintentional injury to children is falls.
  • Pediatric injuries resulting from falls account for almost half of the admissions to our Pediatric Trauma Services.
  • Pediatric falls occur as result of many types of activities.
  • Some of the leading causes of outdoor falls are associated with bikes, skateboards and scooters, playground equipment, and trampolines.
  • Pediatric indoor falls are associated with open stairways, furniture tip-overs, and television tip-overs.
