It’s summertime and many people are spending a lot more time outdoors, and that can lead to some common, or not so common injuries coming into the hospital emergency rooms. Doctor Steve Kreps, the Emergency Department Manager with St. Charles Bend says water sports and biking take the lion's share of injuries.

"We see water. We do see injuries from riding bikes. Bicycle riding out on the road is very popular here in Central Oregon. We do see people that have injuries. I've even seen folks in the Emergency Department that have been hit by a deer, while they're on their bike. So we definitely see some strange things come into the Emergency Department." Kreps says the rules for outdoor play are common sense: wear a helmet while bike riding. Tell someone where you are going; in the water, use a life jacket.” He says it's a great idea to get your young children into swim lessons and water safety classes.
