As summer approaches it’s important to remember that while we love the water and spending time in it, it can be dangerous too, especially for children. Julie Philbrook, a Registered RN and Trauma Prevention Specialist from Hennepin Healthcare, joins us with more reminders.
As part of their Hennepin Healthcare Here film series, they tell the story of Dalton. While out water skiing, he got caught in the boat motor. Hennepin Healthcare has the only adult and pediatric level 1 trauma center in Minneapolis and they were able to save Dalton’s leg.
