Spooktacular Tips for Halloween Safety


Several years ago I worked with a pre-teen who had severed a finger tendon while attending a pumpkin carving function. He slipped and fell, hand outstretched, onto a knife that was resting on the floor by a carved pumpkin. Every year, in addition to these types of accidents, hand surgeons repair tendons, nerves and arteries caused by pumpkin carving injuries.
