Water and Window Safety

Summer is officially here. As the temperature gets hotter we look for ways to keep cool; swimming and opening our windows are two of the most common ways to keep cool. Children can drown in pools, rivers, ponds, lakes, or oceans. They can even drown in a few inches of water in bathtubs, toilets, and large buckets. Oregon records that 50 young children fall out of windows each year. Install window stops or guards that restrict openings to no more than 4 inches. Teach children to play safely away from windows. Please read more below water safety and about how to help prevent window falls.

Patient Experience Survey

We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy this summer. While we all learn to cope with the reality of the COVID-19, Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic is dedicated as ever to continue improving the care of your children. We want to hear your feedback about your most recent experience at our clinic. Your feedback will help us identify what you believe we are doing well and in what areas we need to improve. The survey is anonymous and it is being conducted via Survey Monkey. If your child had a visit this year you may have already received an email with a link to our survey. Please take the time to complete the survey and let us know how we are doing. Thank you in advance!
