Be On The Safe Side: Nursemaid's Elbow

Children are surprisingly tough, but early educators know all too well that a child's body can be just as fragile as it is strong. In this issue of "Be on the Safe Side," the topic is a relatively common injury experienced by young children--nursemaid's elbow.

 

What is nursemaid's elbow?

 

Nursemaid's elbow (also known as radial head subluxation, dislocated elbow, or pulled elbow) is an injury where a child's elbow becomes partially dislocated. Dislocation means the bones have been pulled out of place. While this sounds quite painful--and it certainly can be for many little ones--it can fortunately be remedied relatively quickly by a health care professional. After successful treatment, the child should feel immediate relief but will be more likely to have another dislocation of the elbow in the future.

Be On The Safe Side: Fire Safety - Prevent, Prepare, Protect

October is National Fire Prevention Month. 

 

Saying goodbye to summer means saying hello to fall: students go back to school; leaves change colors; and of course, cooler weather! While temperatures outside may be dropping, we would like to take a moment to discuss a hot topic in child care--fire safety.

 

This edition of "Be On the Safe Side" is inspired in part by an event that took place at a child care facility in Pennsylvania this past August--a fire in an overnight family child care home that resulted in the tragic death of five children sleeping inside.  This article is difficult but provides an opportunity to review the child care rules in place to help PREVENT such fires. The rules also act as a guide as you PREPARE for a potential fire-related emergency and help PROTECT the lives of the children in our care.
