The home can be a dangerous place. So learned two of my patients from this past week after a pair off unfortunate accidents. The first fell off the top step of a ladder while changing a light bulb, and landed himself in the trauma bay with an open tib-fib fracture. The second was using a power saw on some wood in his garage. Missed the 2x4, but hit his thigh, earning an 8 inch laceration that nearly hit bone. Remember, safety first.
