March Tips of the Month:

National Poison Prevention Week -
March 15-21, 2009

Most people regard their homes as safe havens. But homes can be dangerous places when it comes to accidental poisonings, especially accidental poisoning of children. Each year approximately 30 children under age five die from poisoning.

Last year, experts at the nation's 64 poison control centers provided emergency treatment advice for more than 2.3 million people, from the very young to the very old. More than half of these cases were children under age six.

The top 5 poisons children commonly ingest are:

  • Household cleaners
  • Medications
  • Cosmetics and personal care products
  • Foreign bodies (coins, watch batteries)
  • Plants, berries, and mushrooms

Children act fast and so do poisons. We urge all parents, grandparents, and caregivers to check their homes and take the necessary steps to keep children from being poisoned.
