Child Falls: Did you know?

Did you know that 50% of Emergency Room visits for injured children are due to a fall? It is a statistic that most parents, child care providers and professionals supporting parents do not realize.

Ottawa Public Health is excited to share a new print ready poster meant to build awareness of this important issue and to provide tips on how to help prevent child falls.

Download the poster

If you support young families, we hope that you will post the Child Falls: Did you know? poster in your center where it is visible to parents and  reinforce the key messages with the parents and caregivers you work with.
