Two hundred children with glass injuries were investigated; 48 were injured in falls through architectural glass and 87 by broken bottles. Nine children had serious lacerations--7 of which were sustained at home. Radiographs were important in diagnosing retained fragments but prophylactic antibiotics were unnecessary. Many injuries could have been prevented by more stringent safety measures.
