Accidental Burn Cases in Mississippi

Mississippi leads the nation in the number of burn cases each year. Why is it that Mississippi seems to lead the nation in matters that are not good for our people and is last in what is good. I suspect the poverty level of our state has a lot to do with this problem. Having the highest number of burns each year is something that needs to be prevented. Last week Chuck Mullins posted a Blog article on a new case we have in the office. A man died in a rooming house from third degree burns he sustained in a shower. It is hard to imagine a shower being hot enough to cause third degree burns but from our research we have discovered it is not uncommon. Many of the fires that take place in Mississippi are caused by space heaters and other types of heaters in older homes. We need better education in Mississippi to help prevent so many deaths and injuries from fire.
