Cómo suceden los accidentes de cuidado infantil

Supervisión negligente por parte de los trabajadores de guarderías

There are many ways in which children can suffer injuries while in a daycare facility. Most of these fall under the umbrella of negligent supervision of the daycare workers and/or inadequate job training. Some of the most common injuries to toddlers involving this include:

  • Lesiones a los niños pequeños al tratar de gatear fuera de las cunas y caerse o pellizcarse los dedos
  • Lesiones a los bebés al rodar mesas para cambiar pañales
  • Heridas por asfixia en alimentos, juguetes u objetos pequeños
  • Las lesiones de los cochecitos o los juguetes de montar colapsan
  • Lesiones por caídas de columpios y otras estructuras de juego

Todas las lesiones anteriores pueden y deben evitarse con la supervisión adecuada.

Lesión debida a juguetes, cochecitos, cunas o equipo defectuosos

Children who have been abused may not always show physical signs, especially if they are victims of sexual abuse. They may even be threatened and scared into not talking by their abuser. It is important to watch for changes in your children’s behavior and or personality and to take action if you fear your child is being abused. Some of the most common signs of abuse are:

  • Miedo a ir a lugares a los que solían ir regularmente, como la guardería
  • Expresando miedo a una persona en particular
  • Regresando en sus comportamientos tales como
    • Enuresis
    • Negarse a hablar
    • Aferrándose a los padres
    • Mordaz
  • Actuar o rebelarse
  • Cambios extremos en su estado de ánimo o actitud
  • Mostrando un interés inusual en las actividades sexuales
  • Más lento que el desarrollo mental normal en comparación con los compañeros
  • Pobre calificación en la escuela
  • Baja autoestima, ansiedad o depresión
  • Signos físicos de lesión

Denuncie el abuso infantil: es la ley

If you suspect that your child may be abused, seek medical advice immediately. Talk to your pediatrician about your concerns. If you have knowledge that your child or any child is being abused call the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Abuse Hotline: 1-800-252-5400. Texas law requires adults having knowledge of a child being abused to report same. Failure to report child abuse is a crime in Texas.

Problemas de licencias y seguros en Daycares de Texas

Unfortunately, licensing and insurance requirements can be a problem in Texas daycares. The State of Texas does not impose strict licensing and insurance requirements on many daycare facilities. Texas divides child care facilities into three categories for purposes of regulation:

  • Casas familiares con licencia,
  • Hogares de cuidado infantil registrados, y;
  • Hogares de cuidado infantil con licencia.

The regulations and restrictions that apply to the people watching your child vary based upon its classification. None of them are required to carry liability insurance. This can leave small mom and pop daycares to shut down and file bankruptcy to avoid liability when they injure a child. Furthermore, homeowner’s insurance does not cover injuries that occur on the property while conducting a business activity such as operating a daycare. Thus, home-run daycares are rarely covered by liability insurance and their owners are often judgment proof in Texas.
