The Injury Prevention Program

A recent study by researchers in emergency medicine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center found parents use baby gates and bath thermometers less than 25 percent of the time.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that primary care physicians discuss The Injury Prevention Program (TIPP™) with parents during the four to six month check-up. TIPP sheets include safety devices such as baby gates, window guards, smoke detectors, car seats and bath thermometers.
