Among the findings:
- Most of the injuries involved cribs (83.2%), followed by playpens (12.6%) and bassinets (4.2%).
- Falls accounted for two-thirds of injuries overall, although that proportion increased with age, likely because of increased mobility and climbing skills.
- The most common diagnosis was a soft-tissue injury (34.1%), followed by a concussion or closed-head injury (21.1%).
- The two most frequently injured body parts were the head or neck (40.3%) and face (27.5%).
- The vast majority of children were treated and released (93.9%); 4% were admitted, transferred, or held for observation; 1.2% died; and 0.9% left against medical advice.
- Most of the deaths occurred in infants younger than 6 months and involved a diagnosis of cardiopulmonary arrest or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
- Hospitalization, transfer, or being held for observation was more common in children younger than 6 months and in those with fractures.
