Be On The Safe Side: Prevent Burn and Scald Injuries

According to the American Burn Association, approximately 600,000 burn injuries are treated in hospital emergency departments each year. Close to half of these burn injuries and one-third of admissions to burn centers are categorized as scald injuries. An estimated 60 percent of scald injuries happen to young children aged 4 or younger. With the high number of children affected by scald burns, it is important for caregivers to develop strategies that decrease the risk of burns and maintain a safe and healthy environment for children.
