Dealing with Accidental Poisoning

 

Prevention

Simple safety measures are the best way to make sure your child cannot get access to poisons.

    • When buying medications, household chemicals and garden products, choose childproof containers if possible. Ask for pills and tablets in blister packs and foil strips.
    • Put all poisons out of reach of children after using or buying them.
    • Use child resistant locks on cupboards containing poisons.
    • Always read the labels of all medications and follow the instructions when giving medication to your child.
    • Do not confuse children by talking about pills and liquid medication as ‘lollies’.
    • If you take pills, do so out of sight of children.
    • Keep handbags out of reach of children.
    • Discard old medications, batteries and poisons.
    • Store poisons and medications in their original containers.
    • Never put poisons in drink bottles.
    • Keep children away from the dishwasher and close it after putting dishes in.
    • Parents and caregivers should consider doing a first aid course.
    • Do not grow poisonous plants.

First aid

If you suspect your child has been exposed to or has swallowed a poison, call the Poisons Information Centre for first aid advice (even if symptoms have not developed). It is open 24 hours a day.

Do not try to make your child vomit unless advised to do so by the Poisons Information Centre.

If you are told to go to the emergency department take any container (spray bottle, pill container etc) with you.
