What have been your experiences with mvcs and kids in backless booster seats?
It seems like everyone considers them safe, but when I was working, every accident I worked with kids in backless boosters were horrible - it seemed like they never did any good. I worked one wreck with a 4 yo in a backless booster and the booster had slid out from under her (and it had been buckled in correctly) and pulled her under the seat belt with it - which choked her and then threw her into the seat in front of her and caused serious trauma to her abdomen. She was able to talk to me and describe what happened, but she was pretty badly hurt. How big do you think kids should be before using a backless booster? I just don't feel like they're safe and was wondering if others in EMS have had similar experiences or if you've seen them do a good job.
