ABOUT POISON CONTROL
Each year, millions of people reach out to the experts at poison control for help when they are exposed to common household substances, including over-the-counter drugs. In keeping with the times, NCPC — a 501(c)(3) charitable organization — developed online guidance for those who prefer not to call or can’t call. webPOISONCONTROL provides instant free triage recommendations and automated follow up for acute, unintentional exposures to a vast array of products. The new tool, which is also in the form of an app, is used by 24 of the 55 poison control centers across the country.
