Database: Injuries reported by emergency rooms The Consumer Product Safety Commission's National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) is a sample of 100 hospital emergency rooms in the United States and its territories. Patient information is collected from NEISS hospitals for every emergency visit involving an injury associated with consumer products. Make no mistake: Many injuries found here are the result of accidents or carelessness and not the fault of the product itself. More than 374,000 injuries were reported in 2008, the latest available year for NEISS data. Type a keyword (such as "ladder" or "toy" or "eye" or "shot") into the empty text box and click on Search. You can also search by sex, age and treatment date. Use Advanced Search to select a date range. Children under age 2 are shown by age in months and have a "2" prefix: 223 = 23 months
