Tips for Preventing Traumatic Injuries

Last updated 2 years ago

All it takes is a moment of distraction or poor preparation to cause a life-changing traumatic injury. By implementing a few simple precautions, though, you can greatly reduce your chances of experiencing a medical crisis.

Outdoor activities often lead to traumatic accidents when participants fail to wear recommended safety gear. If you or a loved one intends to go for a bike ride, play football, or engage in another sport, make sure that safety helmets, pads, and other protective equipment are worn. Car collisions can also cause traumatic injuries. So before you or a loved one begins driving, ask that everyone in the vehicle secures his or her safety belt. While en route to your destination, eliminate possible driving distractions. For example, refrain from using cell phones for either texting or talking during car rides.

When an unexpected accident occurs, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point can see to it that you receive prompt and appropriate emergency treatment.
