"Those toys allow kids to move around on their own before they can walk â€" a recipe for disaster at the top of the stairs," said Dr. Young-Jin Sue, an emergency doctor at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore in New York.
According to Sue, this information was consistent with with her own experience in the emergency department. "Fortunately, the vast majority of stair injuries are very mild," she said. "They're soft tissue injuries â€" bumps and bruises. I can't remember the last time we had to hospitalize a child" who was injured on the stairs. Still, Sue pointed to the importance of keeping the stairs free of clutter and making sure young children are always supervised.

Ask Dr. Manny :: There’s Nothing Scary About Healthy Halloween Treats, 17 Oct 2007 [cached]
The last Halloween health tip comes from Dr. Young-Jin Sue, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist at New York's Montefiore Medical Center. Dr. Sue says that parents should always be on the alert for asphyxiation and aspiration hazards.
As Dr. Sue says, "It's tempting to decree outlawing all risky treats, but as parents, we've all been in situations where judicious bending of rules helps maintain the peace."
ABC 4 - Fourth of July Safety, 24 Aug 2004 [cached]
But Dr. Young-Jin Sue of Montefiore Medical Center says, perhaps it's best not to use any fireworks at all.She says the injuries can be tragic. “Amputations can occur, the more serious injuries, deep lacerations, in rare instances there has been death caused by injury to the head, people looking over a bottle rocket.â€
In fact, more than 50 percent of all fireworks-related eye injuries occur around the Fourth of July holiday, almost half of those injured are bystanders, and nearly 400 patients lose vision in one or both eyes because of their injuries.
The big problem for eye injuries is bottle rockets!They account for seventy percent of eye injuries and most happen at home. “These bottle rockets don't exactly fly the way you expect them to,†remarks Dr. Sue.

Young-Jin Sue, MD, a pediatric emergency room physician at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore, offers the following practical advice that will allow parents to relish the holiday as much as their kids.
Small candies can be choking hazards Small and hard candies will likely land in most children's bags this Halloween, and parents should be aware that they may pose either of two types of choking hazards: asphyxiation and aspiration.
Asphyxiation hazards are small, roundish, firm objects which can completely block a child's airway, leading to immediate, life-threatening effects. "These include non-food items such as small toys and edible items including sourballs, gumballs, nuts, and even some firm foods like apples," says Dr. Sue.
Aspiration hazards are small, firm objects such as jelly beans, gummy bears, Skittles, Smarties, Spree, gum, or licorice pieces that are smaller than the airway diameter. These candies may be too small to become lodged at the larynx, but can pass into the trachea, with serious consequences. "An aspiration hazard can lead to persistent discomfort ranging from difficulty breathing to pneumonia from aspiration onto the bronchi," explains Dr. Sue.
Safer choices include any treats that crumble readily and/or melt easily, including most cookies, most chocolates (except for peanut and almond M&Ms), peppermint patties, and peanut butter cups.
When it comes to lollipops, a perennial Halloween favorite, Dr. Sue advises parents to consider their child's developmental abilities, health and temperament. "Some children suck patiently on their pops while others bite them off the stick; some sit quietly as they enjoy their confections while others run around at breakneck speed or engage in wrestling," she says. "In general, kids should always eat while sitting still, not running around or wrestling with siblings or friends."
Different types of pops pose varying levels of choking hazards. Flat ones are generally safer, but blow-pops might pose problems. "It's not difficult to imagine that a blow-pop bitten off the stick could lead to choking, never mind the bubble gum at its center," says Dr. Sue.
Examine your kids' goodies If parents want to be sure the candy in their kids' Halloween bags is safe, they should consider trick-or-treating only at houses of friends. Once at home, parents should carefully examine every piece of candy before allowing their kids to indulge.
"Have your kids empty out their bags for examination before allowing them to eat anything," says Dr. Sue.
The key, says Dr. Sue, is for parents to exercise good judgment in light of their children's individual temperaments, developmental levels, allergies and general health.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
