Protecting your children from prescription medications in a Wichita Kansas medicine cabinet

Safe Storage for Medication

Every year many children are treated due to accidental medication exposure or overdose. Most of these cases were because a child got into medications while unattended. The best way to prevent this is to keep medications locked away out of sight.

Tips

  • Never leave any medication laying out.

  • Always keep medication locked away from reach of any children

  • If you have visitors that may have a pill box (such as visiting grandmother) in their purse ask them to put it on a shelf or out of sight of any children.

  • Even between dosing remember to lock away medications even if it may be handy to keep them on a countertop or in your purse.

  • Many medications may look or taste like candy. Make sure to have child-resistant bottles and/or packaging.

  • Keep the number for poison control where you can find it. Put it on the fridge or even program into your cell phone.

For a poison emergency in the U.S. call 1-800-222-1222
