Health Tip: Keep Medications Out of Youngsters' Reach

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.
