Injury is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality in children in the United States. The misfortune of losing a child brings heartache to not only the family of the child, but to caregivers and society as a whole. The reality is that the majority of unintentional injuries are likely avoidable. Once recognized, injury treatment has variable results and thus prevention is the key to decreasing this burden [1]. A key factor in injury prevention is counseling and instruction which is often facilitated by the primary care provider of the child.

The affliction of pediatric injury is a major public health concern and has lead multiple nationally recognized medical organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the United Stated Preventative Services Task Force, to recommend injury prevention education as part of the well child checkup. Increasing awareness of parents and guardians for safety measures can facilitate safer practice measures and improve the security of children [2].
