When your pediatric patient has accidents
Seizures can happen at any time, causing [child’s name] to get seriously injured. One of those places is in water, including the bathtub and shower. Do you supervise [child’s name] during showers and bath time?
[Child’s name] loves to take a bath and has no interest in a shower. And honestly, I think [child’s name] is old enough to need some privacy, not to mention I don’t have time to sit there when they take a shower.
I know it can be difficult for [child’s name] to switch from baths to showers and to have you monitor them. No two patients are the same, but I do have experience working with many parents to find the best ways to keep their children safe. Let’s talk about ways you can maintain [child’s name] independence while protecting them from serious injury.
