Every year, nearly 500 children, ages 0-17, will be admitted to C.S. Mott Children's Hospital as a result of a serious injury and another 6500 are treated for an injury in our Pediatric Emergency Department.

Quality & Assessment

The Injury Prevention Program conducts annual audits of our pediatric trauma admissions. This information is used to ensure that our programming is relevant to our patient population, to expose potential trends that would warrant new programming and to set priorities for the upcoming year.

children in the proportions that
injuries are, people would be
outraged and demand that this
killer be stopped."
