Baby monitor safety

One of the most common things I see during Home Safety Evaluations is a baby monitor placed or mounted too close to the crib. Monitors MUST be kept at least 3 feet away from the crib. Children can get entangled in the power cord or chew on the cord and risk electrical burns or electrocution.

I make sure to utilize a cord channel as well as an outlet cover to prevent children from playing with the power cord or outlet.

All electrical outlets should be protected with sliding outlet covers that will shut automatically when a plug is removed.
