Their top 5 childhood medication safety
- Teach children that they should not taste
anything unless an adult who they know and trust gives it to them.
- Keep medication in its original, child-resistant
- Store medication up high and out of the
reach of children (preferably a locked cabinet).
- Keep track of medications given to a child
to prevent multiple care givers giving the same dose twice.
- Use a properly marked measurement spoon or
dropper (not the silverware teaspoon).
disposal of unwanted medication is also important. If possible, avoid getting more medication
than you will need. But if you do find
you have expired or un-needed medication check with your pharmacist to see if
there is an authorized drop off location.
If not medication can be disposed of down the toilet or removed from its
bottle, mixed with coffee grounds or kitty litter and disposed of in the
garbage. Don’t discard prescription
medications in their original bottles, loose in the garbage or burn them.
