In honor of National Poison Prevention Week, Safe Kids has released a new report and infographic titled: Safe Medicine Storage: A Look at the Disconnect Between Parent Behavior and Knowledge
The report highlights the difference between what parents know they should do and what they actually do to prevent unintentional medication poisonings. The survey found that 9 out of 10 parents know it is important to store medicine up, away, and out of sight from children. Yet, 7 out of 10 parents report they store medicine where children can see and sometimes reach it.
This is a great reminder for every parent. It takes just a few extra steps to ensure our kids are safe.
