With a confirmed case of COVID-19 in our community, we will be rescheduling all non-urgent visits until further notice. We will be offering phone visits only for matters that can be reviewed by phone. If you require an urgent appointment, please call to speak with a staff member. At that time, you will be screened for COVID-19 exposure. We will give you directions on what to do next if you screen positive. Thank you for your cooperation.

Child and Youth Injury Prevention

While injuries that may happen to children are usually accidents, most of the time they are predictable and preventable. According to the Canadian Pediatric Society (CPS), unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death of children and youth in Canada. CPS also states that 90% of these injuries could have been prevented. According to CPS, these events cause trips to the hospital due to unintentional injuries the most:

Falls:

  • Window safety mechanisms
  • Stair gates
  • Baby walkers can be dangerous, ensure stability

Motor Vehicle Accidents:

  • Keep children rear facing as long as possible
  • Children 4 to 7 should use a booster seat
  • The safest place for a child to sit is in the back seat!

Pedestrian/Cyclist safety:

  • Education on proper crossing techniques
  • Use of bicycle helmets
  • Use appropriate bicycle pathways or lanes

Drowning:

  • Use personal flotation devices
  • Ensure adequate fencing around private pools
  • Swimming lessons

Burn or Scald Prevention:

  • Use safe cooking practices
  • Ensure heat producing materials are child proof or out of reach
  • Check smoke detectors regularly

Poisoning:

  • Keep potentially poisonous items out of reach of children
  • Example: medications, cleaning solutions, detergent pods...etc
  • Do not ‘rebottle’ harmful substances such as bleach
