Poison Control

This page has been automatically translated from English. MSDH has not reviewed this translation and is not responsible for any inaccuracies.

The Mississippi Poison Control Center is available 24 hours per day, each day of the year, to assist callers in the assessment and management of poisoning incidents.

Poison control centers serve as a vital resource for their local health care communities. Emergency room physicians and nurses call the poison centers when they have questions about treatment or prevention.

Most of the time poison control center experts can take care of the poison exposure problem with phone contact only. If hands-on medical treatment is necessary, the poison center expert will call an ambulance, stay on the line until the ambulance arrives, and give treatment advice to the emergency care providers.
