A comprehensive, multidisciplinary review is completed for every death of a Montgomery County child. The results of these reviews are shared annually with the State of Ohio as well as contained in periodic reports published locally.
This is the fifth Report to the Community. It reports on the evaluation of child deaths occurring in the years 2005 through 2008 and provides cumulative data from 1997. What cannot be captured in this Report is the great loss and sorrow to family, friends and community when a child death occurs. We continue to examine the factors contributing to these children’s deaths in order to improve our understanding of how to prevent them.
