With the holiday season underway and many families visiting, remind loved ones that medicine storage
is an important part of children’s safety.
Grandparents, take a minute to walk through your house
and check where you have stored your medication and vitamins. Make sure they are out of sight, out of reach, and secured in a safe area that is not accessible to children. Another danger is keeping medication in suitcases when visiting, as suitcases are typically left on the floor or on a low piece of furniture.
We encourage you to share the information in this newsletter with your families.
