Injury Prevention / Preventing Burns And Scalds

Poor vision or hearing, fragile skin, slow reflexes and impaired mobility can put elderly people at higher risk for burn and scald injuries.  Spilled coffee, hot appliances, steam from boiling water or heating pad–all can be lethal to the older adult.  In this program, viewers learn to be alert to burn hazards in a wide range of potentially dangerous situations such as taking a bath, using heat producing appliances and drinking hot liquids.  Included are checklists for fire and burn safety.

This tape is part of a ten tape series listed in this catalog as Injury Prevention for the Elderly, The Series.
