Medication Safety

Educating children are always a great idea too.  But if the child is not able to comprehend the importance, for instance a 1 or 2 year old, then you will be the one that has to take precautions to keep them safe from medication that is intended for an adult.  To small children some of the medications may appear to be like candy and therefore is very tempting for the child to consume.  If at anytime you suspect that a child has taken medication that belongs to someone else or an adult, seek emergency medical treatment immediately.  Physicians and nurses in the emergency room have also been trained from attending a PALS course that provides much needed knowledge to save a child’s life.
