Between 2010 and 2016, eleven babies died in Nebraska as a result of Shaken Baby Syndrome.
A newly launched campaign run by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services wants to reduce that number to zero. Program coordinator Jackie Moline says Shaken Baby Syndrome should never happen.
Moline says the Abusive Head Trauma/ Shaken Baby Syndrome campaign seeks to get state hospitals to educate patients and staff about the syndrome. According to Moline, many cases are brought on by frustration.
Moline says 11 hospitals in the state have already pledged to work to reduce shaken baby syndrome.
