Avoiding Unintentional Home Injuries
National Safe at Home Week, celebrated from August 22 through 26th is a great time to prevent potential accidents at home. According to the latest statistics from the Home Safety Council, every year some 18,000 people in the United States lose their lives due to injuries sustained at home. In addition, there are some 21 million yearly doctor and emergency center visits to treat home accident victims.
Sadly, most of these accidents that result in death or severe injury are preventable. Both the medical and administrative staff of Altus Emergency Centers have seen firsthand how devastating these incidents can be for families.
We celebrate National Safe at Home Week, by sharing with you some important precautions that can be very easily implemented to safeguard your family.
