No Hit Zone

Norton Children’s Hospital is a “No Hit Zone.”

A “No Hit Zone” is an environment in which:

  • No adult shall hit another adult.
  • No adult shall hit a child.
  • No child shall hit an adult.
  • No child shall hit another child.

Staff members are happy to speak with you if you have questions or would like more information.

The “No Hit Zone” program was jointly created by Norton Children’s Hospital and University of Louisville School of Medicine.
