  1. Falls from heights : a problem not just in the Northeast.

    Article - En anglais


    Falls from windows and balconies have long been recognized as a health hazard facing children in large, eastern cities.

    No study has explored this problem in western and sunbelt states.


    A retrospective chart review of children admitted to a large, west coast hospital for injuries sustained secondary to a fall from a building was conducted.

    The health care costs for injuries secondary to falls were estimated by reviewing Los Angeles County hospital discharge data over a 3-year period.

    Representative cities in western and sunbelt states were surveyed about their building code regulations for windows and balconies.
