'Tis the Season for Safe Medicine Storage
Date:12/11/2012

out on the counter could be a source of harm for their curious, young grandchild," said Budnitz. "Whether traveling for the holidays, or hosting family members in the home, a few simple steps – followed every time – can keep children safe from harm."

Tips to help parents and grandparents safely store medicines and vitamins during the holidays include:

  • Keep all medicines and vitamins up and away and out of sight in a high cabinet or other place inaccessible to young children.
  • Keep purses, bags, or coats that have medicines or vitamins in them out of their reach and sight.
  • When hosting family members and friends, let the adults know where they can safely store their medicines and vitamins, so they are up and away and out of the sight and reach of young children.
  • Remember to ensure all medicines and vitamins are secured every time they are used by checking that safety caps are locked and returning them to a location up and away and out of sight.
  • Program the national Poison Help number, 1-800-222-1222, along with other emergency phone numbers in your home and cell phone so they are available in case of an emergency.

"The holidays can be a hectic time, and no one wants to unintentionally put young children in harm's way by leaving medicines in an accessible place. This is why it is so important to be vigilant about making sure all medicines and vitamins are safely stored in 'up-and-away' places, rather than places kids can easily reach or rummage through," said Emily Skor, vice president of Communications and Alliance Development at CHPA.

Safe medicine storage should be practiced year-round. Returning medicines to a secure location every time they are used can help prevent unsupervised ingestions and ED visits by young children each year.
