Bingham Memorial’s Kid’s Safety Corner

Information to help keep kid’s safe throughout the year

You take nothing more seriously than your role as a parent. You’ve been doing your absolute best by reading books and the latest news about the best parenting techniques recommended by your pediatrician. Yet even the most vigilant parents may not always have all of the answers to keeping their children safe.

At Bingham Memorial Hospital, we take the safety of all children seriously, which is why we’ve created the Kid’s Safety Corner. We are dedicated to providing information to parents and grandparents on how to keep children safe. While our caring and compassionate team of healthcare providers in eastern Idaho will always be here for you and your family in case of an accident, we hope some of the following information will help to give you a little more peace of mind about safety.
