Child Safety
Children enjoy playing both indoors and outdoors, but how far are they safe playing at both the places. It is found that falling is the most common reason for under-12 children to be brought to hospital.Best Education website in India For More Article on Education Click Here

Every third child rushed to an emergency unit would have had a fall and every fourth child would have been bitten, most possibly by a dog.

According to a new study published in the Indian Journal of Pediatrics,
the study found that a Mumbai-bred child is equally vulnerable at home as in public space as far as injuries are concerned. Most injuries are reported to occur on weekdays, especially in the evenings. It is also found that, in India, poorer the people, higher the chances of their child incurring an injury.

The burden of unintentional childhood injuries is huge, as medical data from the western world has shown: The World Health Organisation's 2008 report on Child Injury Prevention said 2,000 children died due to falling every day and it was also the leading cause for disability and death among children. There is, however, little such data available in the country.

"Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death among children in developing countries such as India, but this is changing slowly. Injuries are emerging as a cause of disability and death among our children as well," said paediatricians Dr Rahul Bhamkar and Dr Bageshree Seth who authored the Indian Journal of Pediatrics piece.

According to the study, nearly two-thirds of injured children, are infants, toddlers or pre-schoolers. Findings from a year-long pilot study conducted at MGM Medical College and Hospital, Kamothe, in 2009 reveal that children in Mumbai are vulnerable to a wide range of injuries linked to burns, falls and dog bites, thus underlining the need for more child-friendly public spaces in the city .

"Both boys and girls are equally prone to all types of injuries but poisoning and burns are more common in girls as compared to bites whereas bites and road traffic injuries are more common in boys," said Dr Bhamkar. The study found that the 1-3 age group was most vulnerable to injuries such as burns, poisoning and foreign bodies. "While poisoning and burns are more common in lower socioeconomic classes, foreign body-related injuries occur among children from affluent families," said the authors.

Dr Mamta Manglani, who heads the paediatrics department of Sion Hospital, said unintentional child injuries are now considered a major public health problem. "We don't have child-friendly environment. Our public places don't have appropriate barriers or protective gears (in amusement parks). We have to offer children areas that are safe," Dr Manglani said.

The study shows chances of being injured at home are almost as high as those for outdoors, with almost 50% of the children surveyed getting injured at home. "As families are small these days, parents don't discipline the child much. Also, there are no elder siblings from whom the child can learn from about dangers (of running too fast or touching something dangerous). All these factors make a child vulnerable at home as well," said Dr Manglani.

Children tend to get injured even at schools. Seeing these conditions,
Ms Shalini Ahuja Agarwal, CEO, Safe Baby, said that Safe Baby will be happy to work with the schools and make it safer. The team strongly recommends that all teachers and helpers should be trained in preventing accidents and basic first aid.

Safe Baby offers workshop on "Preventing Accidents and Basic First Aid" and
has trained more than a thousand participants. The response to the
workshops has been over whelming.
