Fact of the Week
According to the National Safe Kids Campaign, hot tap water is the cause for nearly one-fourth of all scald burns among children and is associated with more fatalities and hospitalizations than other hot liquid burns. Generally a burn of this sort will happen in the bathroom, and tends to be more severe and cover a larger portion of the body than other liquid burns. A child exposed to hot tap water at 140 degrees F for three seconds will sustain a third-degree burn
