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.
