PROJECT: ACCIDENTAL POISONING OF CHILDREN

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

Accidental poisoning is common, especially among toddlers aged between one and 3 years.

Children naturally explore their environment as part of their developmental process. They familiarise themselves with new objects and activities through play and imitation, often putting things in their mouths. Accidental ingestion, skin contact, eye exposure, or inhalation of poisonous substances can lead to poisoning.

Due to their limited understanding of safety hazards, young children may not discern between safe and dangerous items. It is crucial for caregivers to ensure a safe home environment and not rely solely on verbal warnings about potential dangers.


If there is suspicion of a child being exposed to poison or receiving incorrect medication or dosage, immediate action is imperative. Contact the nearest medical professional for guidance without waiting for symptoms to manifest.

 

SYMPTOMS:

The symptoms arising from significant poisoning in a child depend on various factors, including the specific substance involved and the extent of exposure:

  • Nausea.

  • Vomiting.

  • Drowsiness.

  • Fainting.

  • Abdominal pain.

  • Fitting.


 

SAFETY MEASURES TO POISON-PROOF YOUR HOME:

To safeguard children against poisoning, preventive measures are paramount. Here are key safety tips:

  • Conduct a thorough home and garden inspection to eliminate all potential poisoning hazards.

  • Encourage caregivers, like grandparents, to do the same.

  • Secure all medications in a locked cabinet.

  • If carrying them in a handbag, ensure it is kept inaccessible to children.

  • Store household chemicals, such as cleaners and gardening products, out of children's reach, preferably in locked storage.

  • Administer medications without distractions, adhering strictly to dosage instructions.

  • Establish a cross-checking system with caregivers to prevent accidental double dosing.

  • Keep poisons out of sight and reach, even those stored in the refrigerator, particularly brightly coloured liquids.

  • Recognise children's climbing abilities and ensure inaccessible items remain securely stored.

  • Verify the effectiveness of child-resistant caps on medication and cleaning containers, ensuring proper closure after use.

  • Refrain from taking medications in front of children to prevent mimicry, and never refer to medications as "treats."

  • Store handbags, both yours and visitors, out of reach of children.

  • Never transfer chemicals or cleaning products to alternative containers, especially food or drink ones.


If in any doubt about the severity of the poisoning, contact a medical practitioner immediately.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook. This retaliation happens on social media and creates doubt about our integrity and ability. Doubt created on social media platforms is both unwarranted and untrue. We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information. The distribution of false information, fake news, slander and hate speech constitutes a crime that can be prosecuted by law. Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.


STANDARD RULES APPLY: Upon appointment, we require a formal mandate with detailed instructions. Please take note that should you not make use of our services – you may not under any circumstance use my name or the name of my organisation as a means to achieve whatever end.
