Poison Control

If you or a loved one is poisoned, trust Avera's fully-equipped emergency facilities to deliver the expert care you need.

Call 911 immediately if someone is poisoned and is not breathing or has collapsed.

About Poisons

Poisons exist in liquid, gas or solid form and can cause sickness or even death if too much is ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin.

Poison is all around us: in the medicine cabinet, refrigerator, cupboards or your own backyard. Medicines, plants and cleansing products are just a few examples of potentially poisonous substances.

Poison Resources

It's important to be aware of these dangerous substances along with prevention and treatment methods. The American Association of Poison Control has designated two poison control centers in the area that can provide additional information.
