  • EH Recognized for Prevention Efforts

    Exeter Hospital was recognized recently for its efforts to prevent shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma in infants. The hospital was among 16 in New Hampshire lauded by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome during the Third Annual Strengthening Families Summit for their participation in the PURPLE program. Exeter Hospital became involved with the PURPLE program, an educational initiative, in 2011. As part of their commitment to the program, nurses and staff of the Family Center at Exeter Hospital, along with pediatricians and emergency department staff in Exeter were trained in an evidence-based prevention program called the Period of PURPLE Crying®, which offers new information on normal infant crying. Shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma is a form of child abuse caused by the violent shaking of a baby or small child, usually by an adult frustrated by the baby’s crying. The Period of PURPLE Crying aims to educate parents about the normality of early increased crying during the first months of a baby’s life, and the associated frustration. The program also seeks to teach parents techniques to soothe a baby, and healthy ways to cope with the crying when cry bouts cannot be soothed.
