Summer Sun...and Accidents?


Today marks the official first day of summer, and with that comes warmer weather, longer days – and accidents?

It’s true. All the great things we love about summer like cookouts and pool parties can also translate to accidents and injuries. According to Kaiser Permanente, there is a 15 to 27% increase in visits to emergency rooms between Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Top summer medical issues include:

  • Heat-related illnesses
  • Drowning and other pool injuries, like slips and falls
  • Sports injuries
  • Food poisoning
  • Burns and cuts
