If a person swallows a poison
Prevent poisoning by making sure your home is as safe as possible, wearing protective clothing and equipment when using chemicals and following the directions on warning labels found on medicines and household chemicals.
- Read the label on the product for safety instructions. Follow the instructions.
- Be ready to describe the poison to the poison control experts - what it was, how much was ingested and how long ago it was taken. Also be ready to describe the person's age and weight.
- If it's safe to do so, take the poison with you to the emergency department.
- Make sure the person is breathing. If not, and if you are trained to do so, start rescue breathing.
