Conference Description: 
Each day in the U.S., about 1,000 people seek emergency care for dog bite injury. Injuries occur in a spectrum of severity from minor scratches and abrasions to major complicated wounds, such as deep open lacerations, puncture wounds, crush injuries, and tissue avulsions, some leading to death. Children are at especially high risk for sustaining dog bites. Nurses have the potential to provide and reinforce pivotal safety information to enhance the safety of children about dog bites. The ED and other healthcare settings, such as primary care offices, provide opportunities for perceptive nurses to teach dog owners how to avoid injury to themselves and their children.
