Burn-Scald Prevention

Burn-Scald Prevention

As we all know, parents are juggling so much during this pandemic. Supervision of children at all times can be a real challenge. Some of the unintended consequences like accidental injuries due to burns, and other injuries can result from all that families are juggling. Burn injuries can be quite severe and can happen very quickly. Steam burns can occur from microwaves, and scald burns can occur from bathtubs. All too often people think about burns only in relation to fires, which of course can be deadly. But burns from boiling water and hot grease can also be life altering.

This flyer is the latest in a series that was created by hospitals, prevention partners, advocates for children, state agency and community provider stakeholders. The information series is designed to promote awareness and prevention of accidental injuries, particularly in younger children.
