The present study was designed to determine the profiles of children with home accidental injuries in low income urban families in Metro Manila. The study included Mothers with children six years of age and below seen at the STUH-OPD OB-Gyn clinic and at the St. Martin Outreach Center, Sto. Domingo Ave., Quezon City. A total of 126 mothers were interviewed according to the originally made Filipino questionnaire. The questionnaire has five parts namely: General information (sociodemographic); types of accidents; types of injuries; measures done to injuries; and storage practices. Statistical analysis of the sociodemographic data showed significant difference between the accident and the non-accident group as to the age of the child who experienced accident. Fall was found to be the most common type of accident. Injuries sustained from falls were the most common type of injuries. Measures done to injuries were based on the urgency and severity of the injury.
