Car Seat Safety Program

Car Seat

*Please Note: Car seat inspections are not done as part of your postpartum stay and are not available on the Family Care Unit. Car seat inspection appointments are available at our St.Vincent Fishers location.

We know your child’s safety is important to you and it's just as important to us. That's why St.Vincent Women's Hospital encourages car seat inspections by certified child safety seat technicians.

Car Seat Safety

Did you know that motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of injury-related deaths among children ages 14 and under? Nine out of every ten child safety seats are misused in Indiana which mirrors national trends. Of those that are misused, 80% of the parents felt that their child safety seat was correctly installed.

We encourage parents/care-givers to make an appointment to have their child safety seat inspected by a nationally certified child passenger safety technician. The technician will offer the latest information and provide instruction on how to properly install the child safety seat.

Car seat inspections appointments are available at our St.Vincent Fishers location. Inspections are done by appointment only and are free of charge unless it is determined that a replacement seat is needed. Inspections last approximately 30 minutes per child/car seat. Spots fill quickly so please call early. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 317-338-CARE (2273).
