The Center for Childhood Safety works with our primary clinics and community partners outside the hospital walls to reduce the top five mechanisms of injury:

  • Motor vehicle

  • Drowning

  • Fire/burns

  • Poisoning

  • Falls

 

Studies have shown that 80 percent of car seats are used incorrectly, which increases the chance of a child being seriously injured or killed in a crash. To educate parents and caregivers on proper installation, Children’s Mercy now offers monthly car seat clinics free to the public.
