From 2013 to 2021, U.S. emergency departments saw an average of 2,300 pediatric injuries due to ceiling fans per year, according to a 2023 study published in the journal Pediatrics [2.], which determined that the injuries were uncommon but preventable.
The researchers gathered data from 640 records in the CPSC database to determine which injuries were caused by fans and found that there were approximately 2,300 pediatric head injuries from contact with ceiling fans per year from 2013 to 2021, totaling 20,523 over the 9 years observed.
Common scenarios included infants and toddlers being lifted into the air by an adult and hitting their head, and older children jumping off of a piece of furniture into the fans. Lacerations were the most common injury, with skull or facial fractures being rarely reported.
