The lastest from the WebMD Newsroom. Click the link to read about a new study reporting that every six minutes a young child in the U.S. is treated in the emergency room for a stair-related injury.
Researchers found that the number of young children who were injured while being carried on the stairs accounts for about a quarter of injuries among children under age 1. These children are also more than three times more likely to be hospitalized as a result of their injuries than children who were injured in other ways.
