Health Tip: Preventing Child Burns

(HealthDay News) -- Every day, more than 300 children are treated in emergency rooms for burn-related injuries, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

To help prevent your child from being burned, the CDC suggests:

  • Install and maintain smoke alarms at home.

  • Supervise children's use of stoves, ovens and microwaves.

  • Set your water heater's thermostat to under 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Never leave food unattended on the stove.

  • Have a fire escape plan.
