If you are visiting small children this holiday season or have small children at your home, you will not want to miss this story by Dr. Richard Besser at ABC News. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Richard_Besser/
Dr. Besser shows how easy it is for children to access medicines, even if they are on a high shelf. But, properly used child-proof tops did stop children from getting into the bottles.
The bottom line is to keep medicines out of sight, out of mind and out of reach. Use the child proof caps and keep in mind when you are around little hands that medicines are often objects of curiosity. They are sometimes multicolored and look like candy.
This story also features the true story and tragedy of one family, which really drives the point home.
We at Life Line Screening hope everyone is having a happy and safe holiday season.
