Children at Risk for Burns from Fireplaces



UW Health surgeon and Trauma Director Lee Faucher, MD, says he sees between 15 and 20 children each year who are burned when they place their palms on glass fireplace doors. Most of the patients are between 10 and 14 months old - beginning walkers who do not have the strength to move themselves away. Parents Kiera and Nick can attest to the danger.
