Renting an Inflatable Bounce House? What You Should Know About Bounce House Injuries! by Dr. Heidi Renner
The most common injuries from bounce houses are to arms, hands and elbows. Many bounce house injuries are due to:
- a collision between bouncers
- a fall onto an outstretched hand
- if a child falls out of the bouncer
These usually happen when you have kids of different ages and sizes bouncing together. Try to place kids into appropriate groups and only have one group bouncing at a time. If an injury occurs and it looks like the arm or leg is physically deformed or there is asymmetry, go to the ER immediately. If it looks normal, it may be OK to wait until the next day to see the doctor, depending on the pain.
