School-related injuries can be prevented
Although school violence seems to be on the increase, more school-age children
sustain unintentional _ rather than intentional _ injuries while at school.
Injuries most often occur on the playground, in physical education classes
and organized sports, and in and around school buses.
"According to the National Safe Kids Campaign, children ages 10 to 14
account for 46 percent of school-related injuries," said Dr. Jerald Zarin,
medical director of Texas Children's Health Plan at Texas Children's Hospital
in Houston. "Boys are three times more likely to sustain a school-related
injury than girls."
Falls and collisions top the injury list. Schools can help by ensuring
play and sports equipment and facilities are inspected, maintained and
meet safety guidelines. Students need to be adequately supervised and school
staff should be trained in emergency first aid and CPR.
