All treats, no tricks on Halloween
Walking around in the dark wearing unfamiliar, often ill-fitting clothing while purposely obstructing your vision with a mask...sounds like a combo sure to create chaos and possible injury, doesn't it? Yet each October 31st we take to the streets in search of a little spooky fun and frivolity.

Halloween injuries usually consist of simple bumps and bruises, but sprains and strains can occur. We've gathered up a few sources of advice for you, beginning with how to treat a sprained ankle, from our own Seaside blog.

What celebration of all things spooky would be complete without a Jack-O-Lantern? Even an inanimate vegetable can pose a danger! In our October 2020 newsletter, we discussed how to avoid hand injuries while carving your pumpkin.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers Halloween Safety Tips on its Orthoinfo website. A Google search will turn up a similar list of tips from any number of reputable sources, like Safe Kids Worldwide. Their 30-second video PSA, below, should appeal to kids of all ages...
Seaside welcomes Dr. Scott Herron

Seaside staff gets social....
Take away the scrubs, masks, and paper booties and caps and what do you have? A bevy of beautiful souls with kind hearts, winning smiles, and bubbly personalities! Our staff enjoyed an "after hours" gathering recently. Recognize anyone?
Dr. Bax is a "keeper"
"The nursing staff was wonderful to me and my caretaker. Dr. Bax was so kind and caring. I will be happy to recommend you!

I recommend more of the good doctors in the area join your staff but keep Dr. Bax!"
