THE CAUSES OF INJURIES REQUIRING ADMISSION TO HOSPITAL IN THE 1970'S

One thousand four hundred and seventeen patients admitted to hospital as a result of injury have been investigated as to the aetiology of the injury. The commonest cause of injury was road traffic accidents but there were many other causes included domestic accidents, sport, alcohol, assault, and injuries sustained at work and in the street. Many of these accidents were avoidable and it is suggested that large publicity campaigns to make people aware of the possible hazards they face in their home, at work, on the playground and on the street might be indicated.
