Nation's first children's hospital-based safety store focuses on child injury prevention
Date:6/25/2009

INDIANAPOLIS The Riley Safety Store at Riley Hospital for Children, the first of its kind in the nation, serves as a model for children's hospitals across the nation. Recently expanded, the Riley Safety Store provides space to showcase safety products for children and families, as well as offer different "zones" that simulate home settings and provide families with the opportunity to practice installation and use of child safety products prior to purchase.

The Riley Safety Store serves all children, including children with disabilities or special health care needs, and offers access to a broad inventory of low-cost or free child safety products and injury prevention education.

The Riley Safety Store is a blueprint for children's hospitals nationwide, with 11 children's hospitals having been trained to launch Safety Stores in the last two years by Riley Hospital's Safety Store Team in partnership with the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions. Hospitals which received training are:

  • The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA)
  • Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital (Cleveland, OH)
  • Texas Children's Hospital (Houston, TX)
  • Children's Hospital of Michigan (Detroit, MI)
  • St. Louis Children's Hospital (St. Louis, MO)
  • Rady Children's Hospital (San Diego, CA)
  • A.I. duPont Children's Hospital (Wilmington, DE)
  • University of Iowa Children's Hospital (Iowa City, IA)
  • Legacy Emanuel Children's Hospital (Portland, OR)
  • Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt (Nashville, TN)
  • Children's Hospital of Orange County (Orange, CA)

"Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death of American children ages 1 to 14 years, and many parents and caregivers are unaware of the risks around the home and on the road that present a danger to their children," said Jeffrey L. Sperring, MD, chief medical officer, Riley Hospital for Chi
