A new study in Pediatrics examines school violence and injuries to children at school. Researchers studied the number of injuries to kids at school using data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System–All Injury Program from 2001 to 2008. The study found nearly 10 percent of all visits to the ER for school injuries were intentional. It also discovered that each year 90,000 kids go to the ER for intentional school injuries. About 40 percent of those injuries are cuts and bruises, 12 percent are fractures and 10 percent are brain injuries. Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson of Seattle Children’s is featured in this interview.
