Grandparents Day: PROTECT Your Grandchildren

Sunday, Sept. 10 is Grandparents Day.  You love your grandchildren and would do anything for them, but did you know these startling facts? Nearly 60,000 young children – or roughly four school busloads of children per day – are brought to the emergency room each year because they got into medicines that were left within reach.  Nearly 1 out of every 4 grandparents say they store prescription medicines in easy-access places, and 18 percent keep over-the-counter medicines in easily accessible spots.  Remember, put your medicines up & away and out of sight.
