New Resource from Safe Kids on Safe Medicine Storage
In honor of National Poison Prevention Week, Safe Kids has released a new report and infographic titled  Safe Medicine Storage: A Look at the Disconnect Between Parent Behavior and Knowledge

This report highlights the different between what parents know they should do to prevent unintentional medication poisonings and what they actually do. The survey found that although 9 out of 10 parents know that it is important to store medicine up, away, and out of sight from children, 7 out of 10 parents report that they often store their medicine where children can see and sometimes reach it.
