Children who survive a drowning typically face a disability that limits their ability to perform everyday activities over their lifetime and often require extensive and expensive healthcare needs.
These deaths and injuries need not occur because toddler drowning is a predictable.
The economic impact of care for a disabled child can be averted. The safety of a child is a human right, and simple steps to prevent drowning can alleviate the tragedy and burden of a fatal and nonfatal drowning.
The website for DOH-Broward is http: Yet drowning among this population is almost always preventable. Drowning fatalities and injuries among children ages 1 to 4 almost always are a result of a non-recreational event, whereby there was no intention of the child to be in the water.
Risk factors that contribute to this issue are: Absence of appropriate adult supervision, or an abrupt break in adult supervision 2. Absence of barriers to prevent or delay access to water4.
Inability or unwillingness on behalf of bystanders to respond to appropriatelyEvidence has proven that a range of interventions are effective in preventing drowning fatalities and minimizing consequences of nonfatal drowning.
Drowning prevention has much in common with other public health agendas that protect and improve the health of individuals such as safe water, communicable diseases, epidemiology and immunizations. Unfortunately, drowning prevention is often overlooked as a public health issue.
What Target Population is affected by the problem: Children deserve a safe environment to grow, play and learn. Sadly a fatal drowning incident can deny a child a future. A survivor of a drowning is likely to live the remainder of their life with a disability that can be as extensive as severe brain injury. Families of a child drowning are not only stricken with grief, but often with guilt realizing simple steps would have prevented the event from happening.
First responders, bystanders, law enforcement and healthcare providers are faced with a difficult emotional experience when their efforts fail to provide a favorable outcome of a needless tragedy.
According to the U. Census Bureau, children aged represent 5. Percent of Population Reached: The training and education under this project are provided through five primary outreach efforts that reach a total population exceedingEvent participation to the general public as well as organizations, schools, businesses and membership groups for the purpose of creating awareness of drowning risks and prevention measures.
Printed materials are provided as well as activities, demonstrations and one-on-one interaction to motivate individuals to make safer choices through simple steps that prevent drowning. At least 10 events are supported annually, with an average attendance of individuals a total of 10, 2. The length of the presentations range from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on group size, the age and learning abilities of the group and the timeframe allotted by the requesting organization.
Typically there is a time afforded for questions; printed materials are also distributed. At least 40 presentations are facilitated annually with an average of 25 participants per presentation a total of 1, 3. Train the Trainer workshops for the staff of family strengthening providers and child protective investigators. The staff of family strengthening providers works directly with families, often making home visits to help parents to ensure their children grow and develop in a positive, healthy and safe manner.
Likewise, child protective investigators make on site visits to households to investigate a report of suspected child abuse or neglect. At least 75 staff members of family strengthening agencies are trained per year, and they in-turn provide water safety education to an average of 18, families annually. Pediatricians are in position to influence parents to apply safer practices to minimize drowning risks and to take action: Parents receive a Water Smart Broward Resource guide and a prescription to enroll in a CPR class for themselves as well as others that are likely to supervise the child, and also a prescription for water safety lessons for their child ren.
Parents during the discharge process are asked 5 screening questions to assess their knowledge about drowning risks and prevention measures. Additionally, the parents watch a brief video and are provided an informational handout that is available in English, Spanish, French and Creole.
Approximately 1, families are reach per month with water safety education.
What has been done in the past to address the high incident of fatal and nonfatal drowning in Broward County to protect the most vulnerable population, children ages 1 to 4: Inan ad hoc committee was formed to discuss the magnitude of fatal and nonfatal drowning among young children in Broward County.
The committee met regularly for approximately a year to determine and implement a plan of action. A decision was made to develop a resource and referral program to provide parents with information about the availability and importance of swim lessons.
Over time, with additional funding, SWIM Central expanded to fund swim instruction during the school year to elementary aged children, initially targeting schools within walking distance to a pool. That drowning rate was reduced to an average of 8 per year.
In spite of the great success of the SWIM Central program, the incidence of fatal drowning has not changed since And sadly, the number of hospitalizations of non fatal drowning admissions has reached the highest rate since the late 90s, and unfortunately, Broward County consistently ranks above the state and national average for the highest number of drowning fatalities and hospitalizations of nonfatal child drowning ages 5 and under. By early spring ofBroward had already experienced 7 drowning fatalities among children ages 1 to 4, which signaled a failure to provide the most essential prevention strategy: Drowning among young children is predictable and preventable.
Almost every fatal drowning incident tells the same story: Two sets of twins, two different apartment complex pools, each with broken gate locks. Both complex pools were built prior to more stringent fencing and gate codes and were not required to comply with current codes.NE Ohio District Meet - Boardman Girls 200 Medley Relay
The toddlers had easy access to water, resulting in 3 fatalities and 1 child living the remainder of his life in a nursing home — all within less than 30 days apart. These two situations provided an alarming question, how many individuals entered those pools and never thought that a broken gate lock was more than easy entrance to their recreational swim? The circumstances of these events, as well as the high number of fatalities launched the initiative now known as Water Smart Broward, which is a countywide educational and awareness campaign to bring awareness that drowning prevention is the responsibility of everyone.
The launch of the program was difficult and was slow to take-off, as promotional resources were not available.

However, in December ofa collaborative initiative known as Saferby4 was created to address the high incidence of child fatalities in Broward County due to unsafe sleep as well as toddler drowning.
An educational seminar was planned to recruit local municipalities and Broward Fire and Police Chiefs to make the Saferby4 pledge and bring aggressive drowning prevention and unsafe sleep education to their respective local levels. The seminar, attended by more than officials and decision makers, received the traction and attention needed for Water Smart Broward. Simultaneously, under the Water Smart Broward umbrella, the major healthcare providers adopted the Water Smart Prescription program to provide awareness of drowning risks and simple steps to prevent drowning.
Additionally, one of the primary Pediatric Hospitals implemented a Water Smart education component upon discharge from in-patient or Emergency Department care. Research provides evidence that community based injury prevention programs are most effective because of the use of multiple interventions implemented throughout the year and via various communication channels afford prevention measures to be repeated in different forms, languages and contexts, yet under a single branding: Is it new to the field of public health or A creative use of existing tool or practice?
Drowning is often ignored as a public health issue. However, drowning is classified as a component of unintentional injuries.
