Los Angeles has a very high number of annual swimming pool related injuries and deaths. Swimming pool injuries can occur for a few different reasons, including maintenance failure and negligence in securing the swimming property from small children.
Swimming pools pose a risk for anyone, but children are at a higher risk of drowning than adults. It is crucial that children never be left unattended at a pool, Jacuzzi or spa. A small amount of water can cause a small child to drown in seconds.
Other Types of Swimming Pool Inuries
Chemical Burns caused by Excessive Chlorine and other Pool Chemicals
A swimming pool that is polluted with extremely high levels of chemicals can be dangerous. This can happen at a public pool, a private pool, school swimming pool or an amusement water park. It can happen as a result of negligence such as ignorance or in the case of a public pool or large water park it could be to ensure the pools are free of bacteria. In any case if you have an instance where you or one of your children suffers from chemical burns after swimming, immediately seek medical aid. Most water parks and community pools have a first aid office available.
If you own a swimming pool it is in your best interest to understand how to properly add the right amount of chemicals such as chlorine to the water. Too much chlorine is as dangerous as not enough chlorine.
Uncovered drains have been responsible for many injuries, especially to children and in some cases death. This is due to the suction of a strong pump. Jacuzzi and pool drains should be covered. If the drain lid is missing or damaged it is the responsibility of the pool owner to replace it.
