Abstract: Accidents during childhood are attributable to characteristics of their developmental stages, and chi1dren, healthy and sick, meet with a wide variety of accidents. Though hospitalized children in particular have higher risks for accidents in the course of adjusting to new environment and serious consequences are drawn depending on their medical conditions, no research reports on such a topic can be found. Therefore, we surveyed and considered accident prevention measures in children's hospitals as well as their guardians' awareness about accidents. Accidents in this survey do not mean those of medical practice but those peculiar to children including falling, accidental ingestion, suffocation, bruises, wounds and burn injuries. After interviewing charge nurses of inpatient' wards about the circumstances of accidents, admission orientation, and accident prevention efforts, we analyzed and discussed the results as follows. 1) Falling accidents and falling from beds happened in every hospital, but no other kinds of accidents. 2) Every hospital made brochures to prevent accidents mostly for guardians,but a few for children themselves. 3) Environmental arrangements for accident avoidance performed are: displays for safe use of intravenous drip and bed fences, five-legged intravenous drip stands, cushioned floor, and safe measures in playing rooms. 4) No predictive tools to prevent children from falling are used.
