The Nebraska Regional Poison Center is only a phone call away. Keep our phone number with you and your holiday guests. Just a few tips to keep in mind:
- Avoid putting purses near young children when you host, or are at a holiday party. There could be medicine or other poisonous items in purses readily available for a curious toddler.
- Keep all medicines up high and out of reach.
- Keep alcoholic beverages out of sight. When guests leave pour out alcoholic beverages.
Call if you need immediate assistance, or even for questions: 1-800-222-1222. You can also text “797979” to your smart phone-this will save the 800 number in your contacts. You will talk immediately to a trained poison center specialist; either a Registered Nurse or Pharmacist.
Tis the season..but please be safe and enjoy this Holiday Season with friends and family!
