Doctors advise to think in advance about how to protect the child from possible injuries.
The Moscow Department of Health, with the help of journalists, decided to remind all parents about the dangers that children may face when traveling to their country house or village. About the main nuances that adults should pay attention to, the chief physician of the children's hospital 9 named. G. Speransky, professor Anatoly Korsunsky.
The expert recalled that in the country, children can easily get burns, fractures and other serious injuries through negligence, if parents do not warn it in advance. He noted that it is very important to know about all places of increased danger and either do not allow children there at all, or visit them only under the supervision of adults.
The top 5 includes electrical panels and electrical appliances, open wells, bonfires and means for starting a fire, agricultural implements (lawn mowers, cultivators, shovels, forks, rakes, hoes, saws), vehicles like scooters and motorcycles,
- Anatoly Korsunsky told the Moscow City News Agency (Moscow City News Agency).
The expert advises to close the wells, not to keep agricultural equipment in the public domain and try to isolate minors from risk areas as much as possible. He also recalled that children should not be allowed alone to open water bodies outside the summer cottage. After all, swimming unattended can end in failure. “Toddlers who can't swim just splash along the shore, but they can slip, fall and drown in minutes. Many people install prefabricated pools right on the sites, in this case, you need to be even more vigilant and not let the child near the water alone. Teenagers who already know how to swim should still be supervised by an adult. Do not let your child go fishing to the reservoir, which is located in the area of the power transmission line - there is a serious threat of electrical injury without even touching the power line,”explains the professor.
And also, experts from the Department of Health strongly recommend that parents do not trust their children to light fires and barbecues, especially using a special liquid for these purposes.
