A medical study estimates that burn injuries to children happen every 60 seconds in the United States. Approximately 300 children suffer burn injuries every day. Nationwide Children’s Hospital based in Columbus, Ohio conducted the study which yielded important information that every parent, caregiver, teacher, and day care provider should know. A researcher for the study stated that most of the children (60 %) were under the age of 6 years old. This is not surprising in that children under the age of 6 do not have the safety awareness or judgment of an older child. The study spanned 17 years and studied information regarding more than 2 million burn injuries.
