Prevention

Child patient

Every year, more than 2,400 children are treated for injuries in the Lutheran Children’s Hospital pediatric emergency room at Lutheran Hospital. Close to 200 of those children have serious injuries and are admitted to Lutheran Hospital, which is a level II pediatric trauma center. Injuries from trauma - ranging from falls to traffic - related injuries - are the leading cause of death and disability in children. That’s why the staff of Lutheran Children’s Hospital is dedicated to preventing not only the number of childhood accidents, but also the severity of the injuries, through education and advocacy. To reach this goal, injury prevention outreach programs were designed to educate children, parents and the general community.
