Children's Hospital in Madison Establishes No Hit Zone
Children’s Hospital in Madison establishes a “no hitting zone” that includes the hospital and goes to other UW facilities.
According to the hospital’s website, a No Hit Zone means that no hitting of any kind is allowed by adults or children.
This includes hitting or spanking of children by parents for disciplinary reasons.
“We understand that patients and families visiting UW Health facilities, such as American Family Children’s Hospital, may be dealing with a lot of stress. Behaviors of young children can intensify these feelings and put parents at risk of engaging in physical punishment,” posted the hospital on its website.
