Poison Center Warns Grandparents About Medications

The Wyoming Poison Control Center is reminding grandparents to keep medications locked away when grandchildren visit.

Spokeswoman Joan McVoy says older people may  be in the habit of leaving their medications out for easy access. But she says children, especially under the age of 5, have a tendency to put things in their mouth, leading to potentially deadly consequences. She says a recent study shows grandparents are four times more likely to leave medications within reach of children than parents.

She also advises grandparents not to take their medications in front of young children, who often imitate the behavior of adults.
