POISON CONTROL

Raising a child is definitely one of life’s greatest challenges. It is also one of life’s most rewarding challenges. This brochure will provide a recommended immunization schedule, and information on poison control, nutrition and health insurance. In addition, you will find a listing of useful phone numbers for state agencies and other organizations that can provide valuable childrelated information.

According to statistics, poisoning of children under 6 accounts for almost 50 percent of all poisonings. Some of the common items that are responsible for poisonings are: pharmaceuticals, cleaning products, plants and cosmetics. Other items reported to have been causes of poisonings are personal care products, insecticides and pesticides. If you suspect that your child has been exposed to or has ingested a dangerous product, call your local poison center immediately at 1-800-222-1222. Help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Make sure you have with you the container of the item you think was ingested when you call the poison center in the event you need to give detailed content information.

IMMUNIZATION

Immunization for basic childhood diseases is a vital part of your child’s health care. Pennsylvania law requires insurance companies to cover the following vaccinations: measles, mumps, whooping cough and other preventable childhood diseases. Policies must also cover the cost of booster shots. I have included an immunization record in this brochure for you to keep a record of your child’s immunizations. This information will be required when your child enters school. It is also helpful should you move, change doctors or need to obtain emergency medical treatment for your child.

Health insurance is a necessity for your children. Unfortunately, not all employers provide coverage for an employee’s dependents and many families cannot afford to purchase private insurance coverage. The Children’s Health Insurance Program is a state-funded program that provides health insurance coverage for children whose parents cannot afford private insurance but whose incomes are too high to qualify for welfare or Medicaid. To see if your children are eligible to participate in CHIP, please contact my office for more information and an application.

BABY NUTRITION

Your baby’s diet is crucial to the healthy physical and mental development of your child. If you have questions or concerns about infant and child nutrition, you can visit the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Web site at www. aap.org.
