The logistic regression model showed that if the number of residents in the household is more than four people, the chance of accidents increases by 2.9 times;the presence of stairs/steps with no handrail increases the chance with 14.9; exits and passageways that are blocked with toys or other obstructive items, increases the risk 11.3 times;cleaning products / insecticides stored in low places increases the number of accident by almost 16 times. CONCLUSION: The study allows nurses to rethink their actions and prioritize the prevention of domestic accidents in the care of children's health, while valuing the dynamics of the family context.
