Be Aware of Poisons
MMHD Encourages Poison Prevention Week Awareness
Unintentional poisoning deaths are on the rise in
the U.S. An estimated 71,000 children (18 years old and younger) are
seen in emergency departments each year because of poisonings from
medications (excluding recreational drug use). More than 80 percent
of visits are because an unsupervised child found and consumed
medications. As part of National Poison Prevention Week, Mayers
Memorial Hospital District (MMHD) would like to make the residents
of the Intermountain Community aware of poisons and chemicals,
provide information on preventative steps people can take to ensure
their safety and that of their loved ones.
MMHD hopes that by bringing awareness to National
Poison Prevention Week, the number of people who are involved in
poisonings each year will decrease; especially poisonings in the
home— the most commonly reported poisonings.
Residents Thanked for Help
Members of the State Of Jefferson Brotherhood
presented a plaque to Kathleen McCulley and the residents of the
Mayers Memorial Hospital District Burney Annex. The residents hosted
a car wash before Christmas last year and contributed funds raised
to the Brotherhood’s Toys for Tots campaign. The residents try to
select two activities per year that contribute to the community. The
plaque was presented to the residents last week.

the BFREF has now accumulated, through smart investments and
the never tiring generous support of our community, enough
donations to award our school district students with the
tools they so desparately need to advance their future
expectations in education.
