Kosair Children's Hospital becomes "No Hit Zone"

Posted: Updated: Nov 12, 2012 11:43 AM EST

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kosair Children's Hospital is taking a stand against all forms of physically disciplining a child.  Kosair joins about 30 other children's hospitals across the nation in becoming a "No Hit Zone."

That means the hospital will enforce an environment where no hitting is allowed -- adults and children included.

Hospital staff have been trained on how to intervene when tense situations look as if they're about to turn aggressive. The hospital wants to encourage what it calls effective forms of discipline such as timeout and setting family rules.

You'll find "No Hit Zone" signs displayed around the hospital.
