Household Poisoning Prevention


Store medications and vitamins in a locked container

Remind relatives, baby sitters, and visitors to keep medications in childproof containers and out of sight

Keep housecleaning supplies (bleach, ammonia, drain cleaners) out of reach or in a locked cabinet

Keep houseplants out of reach, many are poisonous

Keep personal-care products (antiseptics, nail polish, hair cleaner) out of reach

Flush old medications down the toilet-don't throw in trash
