Health Tip: Create a Safer Home for Kids With Seizures
For starters: secure padding to any object with sharp corners

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If your child has epilepsy, you can take steps to reduce the risk of a seizure leading to injury.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Securing padding to any object with sharp corners, such as a table or countertop.
  • Avoiding glass tables.
  • Getting your child a bed that is low to the floor.
  • Making sure carpeting is non-slip, and not using throw rugs.
