And reduce their risk of accidental poisoning
(HealthDay News) -- Keeping medications away from children can help protect them from accidental ingestion.
The SafeKids.org website offers these guidelines to help keep medications away from kids:
- Store all vitamins and medications where children can't get to them.
- Search your home for drugs such as eye drops, rubbing alcohol or gummy vitamins, and store them out of reach.
- Store the purses, pocketbooks and coats of guests away from where your child can get to them.
