Study analysis injuries found in the emergency department to children of teenage parents
No doubts there has been considerable decrease in number of teenage parents but still there are many in number and their kids are prone to more accidents as compared to others. It has been found that this may be due to low standards of teenage parents or they are uneducated or they some where lack parental safety and also supervision skills. Recently a new study published in The Journal of Pediatrics has analyzed the types of injuries to children of teenage parents.
According to the thorough research, the data was analyzed between the years 2009 to 2011. It was found that total of 764 patients under the age of 7 years were included in the serious treatment. Most included falls and ingested objects. The bruising/skin marks and fractures were also quite prominent.
The co-researcher, Brian D. Robertson, PhD, and colleagues from UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children's Medical Center explain about the study, “Injury prevention efforts for teenage parents should be devoted to preventing falls and foreign body ingestions.”
