Common Reasons for Kids Injuries

Dr. Francisco Medina, Director of Pediatric Emergency Services and Chief of Pediatrics at Homestead Hospital, says the most frequent reasons that kids injure themselves at home are jumping on the bed and running around.

The expert explains most of the time children don’t lose consciousness after a fall. However, he advises being alert if the child behavior changes, the kid bleeds through the ears or the nose, loses consciousness or has a seizure.

Dr. Medina recommends examining kids in all of the cases of falls.
