Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is committed to the well-being of all children. Part of the responsibility of a top children's hospital is providing resources to the community to help keep children healthy and safe.
Safety and Injury Prevention
All children deserve to be safe. We work hard to make sure the children in our community are safe. There is a Safety Store in Children's Hospital. We are leaders in child passenger safety and the Safe Kids Cumberland Valley organization. We also participate in community safety events through Kohl's Safety Outreach Program.
Visit our Safe Children Program website for information on our safety programs. The Safe Children Program is part of Vanderbilt Children's Health Improvement and Prevention Program (VCHIP).
During the past year, Children's Hospital cared for 1,874 children from a trauma situation. Many of these could have been prevented. Our Trauma Injury Prevention Program examines trauma data to help identify critical areas to focus injury prevention efforts such as ATV safety, pediatric falls, and teen motor vehicle safety.
