Injuries & Illness
Amanda, a 9 year old, suffers a crushed leg as she walks between 2 cars in the parking lot, when a parent unintentionally backs up his van and hits the
other car’s bumper. When you arrive at the scene, Amanda is lying on the ground. Her leg is deformed and something is sticking out of an open wound on her leg.
Do NOT allow children to:
Dana, a 7-year old, walks behind another child who is swinging on a swing. The seat of the swing hits her in the mouth. She begins crying immediately. You look in her mouth and see that one of her front teeth has been knocked out and several others seem loose.
You are able to locate the tooth on the ground. Dana has already lost her front baby teeth so this tooth is one of her permanent teeth.
