Plastic Vials With Child-Resistant Caps - A Revolution in Design

In 1986 the Consumer Product Safety Commission conducted a survey of 2,015 accidental ingestions of oral prescription drugs by children under five that had been reported to 9 Poison Control Centers around the country. The findings of this study indicate that all consumers regardless of whether they have young children of their own or not, should always take care to obtain their prescriptions in child-resistant packaging, to close the caps tightly, and to keep medicine stored out of sight and out of reach.

Thirty-one percent of all medication involved in the reported accidental ingestions belonged to someone other than the child's immediate family, such as grandparents and other older adults. The medicines belonging to this group were some of the most toxic in the study and therefore presented the greatest potential for real tragedy. In addition, these individuals may not always think about taking extra precautions to keep their medicine out of reach when young children are around.

According to the survey results, many of the ingestions involved non child-resistant containers that had been dispensed to parents with young children. For example, plastic vials with child-resistant caps to contain pill medicine and liquid ovals to contain liquid drugs. This indicates that some pharmacists are not aware that all oral prescription drugs must be dispensed in child-resistant packaging unless non child-resistant packaging is specifically requested. These parents were dangerously unaware that the packaging provided no child-resistant protection.

Just prior to the accidental ingestion, most medicine was stored where it was convenient to take, which made it readily accessible to children. Kitchen counters, kitchen tables, and kitchen cabinets were some of the most common storage places.
