What’s this MOON thing!
Article by: LeeAnn Lightner, MSW, LSW, ACM
Director of Care Management, Nason Hospital

Beginning no later than March 8, 2017, all hospitals must start providing this required notification to Medicare patient receiving observation care.

The Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON) is a standardized notice developed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to inform beneficiaries that they are an outpatient receiving observation services. Hospitals are required to provide written and oral notification to beneficiaries receiving observation or outpatient services for more than 24 hours. The MOON notice must be delivered to a patient no later than 36 hours after the observation services are initiated.

Few things are more fun than buying toys for the children we love during the holidays, and often, shopping for our little ones brings us as much joy as it does them. But before you plunge into toy-buying this holiday season, Nason Hospital urges you to keep safety top-of-mind and consider the following facts and shopping tips before you spend.

In 2014, researchers from the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital released the findings of a study that analyzed more than 20 years’ worth of children’s safety data. They found that between 1990 and 2011, there were more than 3.2 million toy-related injuries, or more than 150,000 per year. Furthermore, they concluded that in 2011, a child was seen in an emergency room for these injuries every three minutes.

“These accidents are devastating for children and their families, especially when they take place during the holidays,” says John Baker, DO, Medical Director of Nason’s Emergency Services. “To prevent these incidents from occurring, we must be mindful of potential hazards and be conscientious about selecting age-appropriate toys to help keep children safe and healthy.”

Baker offers the following tips as you head for the toy store:

Avoid toys with small parts. For children three years and younger, avoid buying toys that may contain small parts. Toddlers tend to put anything in sight into their mouths, and parts that can fit inside a toilet paper role can cause choking if swallowed. Furthermore, toddlers also are fond of putting objects in their ears and noses – two more good reasons to stay away from anything containing small parts.

Check for sturdiness. Children of all ages are anything but gentle with their toys. Look for quality design and construction in all toys for all ages. Only buy toys that seem durable and able to withstand impact and/or chewing without breaking or splintering.

Make sure toys aren’t too loud.
Whether it’s a new electronic device for your son or a karaoke machine for your daughter, kids love devices and toys that play music or make noise. However, many of these toys are as loud as car horns and can cause ear damage when children hold them to their ears, listen through earbuds or even play with them at an appropriate distance from the ear.

Remember the helmet. If you are thinking about buying your child a new scooter, roller skates or bike, make sure you also remember the helmet and other appropriate safety gear. These toys are fun, but they can also go fast and lead to hard falls.

Check for recalls. In 2015, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled hundreds of thousands of units of toys for various safety reasons. To make sure the toys you are buying are safe, check the latest recalls on the CPSC website.

Read the label. A great thing about toy shopping now is that almost every toy intended for children 12 years old and under includes the recommended age range. For older children, be wary of labels indicating “supervision required.”
