Children’s Hospital: NO HIT ZONE



Children’s Hospital Introduces No Hit Zones

To address the most prevalent risk factor of child physical abuse, corporal punishment, the Audrey Hepburn Children at Risk Evaluation (CARE) Center and the New Orleans Children’s Advocacy Center (NOCAC) are introducing No Hit Zones at Children’s Hospital and its clinics.

Throughout Children’s Hospital and its clinics across the state, No Hit Zone signs will be posted illustrating the well-established harmful effects of corporal punishment and promoting effective painless parenting techniques. Children’s Hospital staff will be trained to give parents resources for effective guidance and explain the harms of physical discipline in a non-shaming or blaming fashion. The CARE Center also provides opportunities for pediatricians, pediatrics residents and community members to practice communicating the negative effects of physical discipline.

Check out Children’s Hospital Small World spotlight publication .

Why a No Hit Zone? Flyer and policy explaining the importance of No Hit Zones for pediatricians and staff.
