Trauma Prevention

A key focus of Emergency Services at Lawrence General is in not just treating trauma and accidents, but preventing them from happening in the first place. The Trauma Nurse Coordinator manages trauma prevention activities, and the Hospital is active in many programs designed to educate the public in many areas of prevention. These include:

Automobile Safety

  • Sponsoring safe driver displays at the Lawrence Registry of Motor Vehicles.
  • Promoting car seat safety with help from local law enforcement officials, the Hospital has three nurses and one paramedic certified by the Massachusetts Governor's Highway Safety Council as Child Passenger Safety Technicians. The team performs car seat safety checks at the Hospital Monday - Friday by appointment only. For more information, call 978-683-4000, Ext. 2075.
  • Encouraging children to pledge to wear seat belts whenever they ride in a car - and to ask their parents to do the same.

Bicycle Safety

  • Promoting safety through annual programs with Kiwanis International, AAA of Merrimack Valley and various community presentations.
