To prevent child poisoning, CDC says meds should be 'up and away' - USA Today

To prevent child poisoning, CDC says meds should be 'up and away' - USA Today:

"Budniz said that the message should be "up and away and out of sight" so kids aren't tempted by medicines.

Carr says caretakers should also make sure they don't have medications lying around in purses and coats, and to remember that "child resistant" does not mean "child proof." The government standard for child resistant is that 4 out of 5 children can't open the container within 10 minutes.

"With 64,000 children ending up in the emergency room for medicine poisoning each year, this is just a call that people must be extra vigilant," Carr said."
