Dr. Bernardez would like to remind everyone to be vigilant and stay safe this 4th of July. Please be careful around water, pools, lakes, rivers, and even hoses and sprinklers pose hazards especially to children.
Fireworks also pose a threat especially to young children and they should be treated with a lot of respect. Every emergency room in America will have people in on the 4th of July with bodily damage. Please don't let it be you or a loved one.
Even going to professional fireworks displays is dangerous to infants hearing, please take precautions.
.....and please don't forget your pets. Every year pets run away because of the loud noises scare them. Please leave your pets home, inside and safe. You don't want your family's and your child to lose their best friend.
Lastly, be-careful around fires, BBQ's and Drive Safe!
The staff of Orange Pediatric Care and Dr. B thanks you and wishes you a very happy Fourth of July!
ps. Don't forget to make an appointment for your annual physicals! Available slots will fill up fast!
