Hot Car Safety
Summer is here and so is the heat! As temperatures rise, so does the risk of heat-related injuries! Children and pets left in hot vehicles for even just a few minutes are in harm’s way. Just three minutes in the sun can heat up a car’s interior from 78 to 100 degrees, putting your kids in danger of hyperthermia or heatstroke. And if your pet can’t come inside, don’t take them along for the ride! Pets can suffer serious injuries when left in a hot car for only 15 minutes. Using the drive-thru keeps everybody cool! Never leave children in the car, even to run a quick errand. Always double check the backseat each time you park to ensure all passengers are out of the vehicle. Prevent children from playing in a hot, parked car by locking it and keeping the keys in a place where kids can’t access them. For more safety tips, click here.

Back To School Physicals – Express Care
Back to school means busy schedules! School supplies, new clothes, sports training programs... with so many items on the to-do list, it’s good to know that back-to- school physicals can be done at Hanover Hospital’s Express Care centers. Staying healthy is an important part of a successful school year and an annual physical exam is an important part of keeping your child healthy.
