Servicing Owen Sound and all of Ontario
If you live in Owen Sound or other communities in the Grey Bruce area, you may be surprised to learn that you are more likely to suffer an unintentional injury leading to an emergency room visit, hospitalization or even death than other Ontarians.
A Grey Bruce Public Health Unit report examining rates of unintentional injuries from 2000-2009 found that people in the region have higher age-standardized rates of hospitalization for all unintentional injuries (27% higher), motor vehicle accident injuries (75% higher) pedal cycle injuries (402% higher) and off-road vehicle accident injuries (171%). Residents also have a higher likelihood of dying from all unintentional injuries (36%) and motor vehicle accidents (71%) than residents of the province as a whole.
These statistics are very concerning. While the Public Health Unit has wisely used its report to advocate for changes to help make Owen Sound and Grey Bruce safer and healthier, unintentional injuries from car accidents, participation in recreational and sports activities, and slips, trips and falls on public and private property still can and do happen.
Serious personal injuries can be devastating to victims and their loved ones. As the Public Health Unit report explains, “severe injuries cause morbidity, loss of independence, diminished quality of life, needless deaths and are a significant cost to our healthcare system as well as to our community.” Broken bones, nerve damage, disfiguring scars, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries can cause pain, suffering, disability and significant financial loss.
