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!
