Medication Safety and Children

Most parents are aware that children can get into anything relatively “QUICK” before you can even blink an eye. They are extremely curious and once they are walking on their own, look out, because they tend to rummage through everything they can reach. It seems that even things that can taste so terrible, toddlers still place things in their mouths and swallow them. If you are a health care professional and provide care to the pediatric population, consider a PALS certification course and become certified in advance techniques that can save a child’s life.
