The holidays are upon us and in full swing; Bumps n’ Bruises would like to remind parents about some kitchen safety. Never hold your child while you are trying to cook over a range top. This is a burn hazard from splashing food as well as the heat from the range. Always turn the handles of your pots and pans in and away from the edge, so a young child can’t reach up and accidentally pull something hot down. Bumps n’ Bruises would also remind you to be caution of children’s toys on floor in your kitchen. It is the gathering room of your home but not the playroom, these can be a fall hazard. Always keep knives out of reach of children and never leave children unattended in a kitchen with the stove top on or with lit fires, like candles. Bumps n’ Bruises would also like to remind you about kitchen fires; It is always a good idea to have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen; And never put water on a grease fire!
Bumps n Bruises Pediatric Urgent Care wishes your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
