Household accidents

Keeping your child safe in and around the home



Glass causes serious cuts with many children ending up in A&E.


Do not leave drinking glasses on the floor. Make sure glass bottles are up high.

What to do

If the cut is not serious bathe the area, make sure there is no glass left and cover with a clean non-fluffy cloth.

If the cut is serious, is bleeding a lot or has a piece of glass under the skin (maybe they trod on some glass) go
to A&E.
