Many head accidental injuries take place at one’s residence – whether it’s a house or a nursing facility – and involve dropping and bumping one’s head, leading to mild concussions to serious and actually fatal TBIs, said Gail L. Rosseau, MD, a Chicago neurosurgeon and an AANS spokesperson. According to the AANS, people age groups 65 and older and babies/toddlers beneath the age of 4 are the most vulnerable. In 2008, more than 31,000 head injuries were related to common baby-related items. A few of the biggest contributors were child car seats , baby strollers , high chairs , and cribs . Nearly 100 % of these injuries affected children ages 0-4, and in the ones that were hospitalized, skull fractures and hematomas had been the most common injuries.
