    Thanksgiving Safety: 5 Ways to Spend Thanksgiving in the Hospital

    Heimlich  Rod Brouhard writes an article for www.about.com which describes 5 ways to spend Thanksgiving in the Hospital

    In particular:

    1. Choking on an Appetizer

    Anybody can get something stuck in their throat. It’s decidedly more common for the kids and grandparents than everyone else — although it gets more common as the wine starts flowing.

    2. Cutting Yourself Instead of the Turkey

    Cutting yourself in the kitchen is both a blessing and a curse — bacteria from food abounds, but you have everything you need to clean your wound at the ready.

    3. Lighting the Kitchen on Fire

    Grease fires are notoriously dangerous. It’s easy to extinguish the typical grease fire by smothering it, but make sure everyone is heading out of the house first.

    4. Getting Burned by the Oven

    Burns are some of the most common injuries around the house. Make sure you know what to do if your bird decides to seek some revenge.

    5. Getting Sick from the Food

    Imagine the looks you’ll get from your mother-in-law after giving the entire family food poisoning. Learn how to recognize food poisoning symptoms, and follow these food safety tips from About.com Busy Cooks Guide, Linda Larsen.
