Children injured through falls from top bunks

Shane Murdoch made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

Accident Compensation Corporation did not have the information requested.

From: Shane Murdoch

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

As part of the rebuilding of a child care facility post earthquakes in Christchurch, we would appreciate information related to the following questions:
1. How many children were injured by falls from top bunks in the period 2008-2013?
2. In how many of those incidents did the top bunk have a guard rail attached?
3. What types of injuries were sustained in those falls?
4. What was the range of ages of the children involved? Could you please proportions or numbers of children in each age group?

Yours faithfully,

Shane Murdoch
General Manager
Cholmondeley Children's Centre
