In the months to come, many kids and teens will be left unsupervised as their parents return to work or work from home during this pandemic. It is very important that prescription medication is properly stored and disposed of while kids are spending time at home. Here are some quick tips to make sure your medication is safe and secure:
- Check all medication for expiration dates. If it’s expired – dispose of it. We have drug disposal pouches for FREE, or medication can be take to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office or KSP post 6.
- Dispose of any medication that you no longer need – old antibiotics, pain pills, etc. If it’s not a current subscription, you don’t need it.
- Lock up all medication. We have lock boxes available for free. You can also use any type of box that will lock or locking cabinet. Do not keep the key and box/cabinet in the same location.
It is important to remember that flushing old medication is not safe for our water supply, so please dispose some other way. Contact us for safe and proper disposal and storage techniques. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org
