Children’s Hospital Designates Main Hospital and Clinics “No Hit Zones”
Hot pink stop signs emblazoned with the words “NO HIT ZONE” have been posted across Children’s Hospital’s main campus, Calhoun Street and State Street campuses, and outpatient clinics, as April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.
In posting the signs and sharing the message, Children’s Hospital’s Audrey Hepburn Children at Rick Evaluation (CARE) Center and the New Orleans Children’s Advocacy Center (NOCAC) are raising awareness about the most prevalent risk factor of child physical abuse – corporal punishment. The No Hit Zone signs illustrate the well-established harmful effects of corporal punishment and promote effective painless parenting techniques.
