Regional Toxicology Center in Villa Clara Saves Lives
According to the Center’s director, Leonardo Lima, prescription drugs are the main cause of intoxication, due to self-medication and children who accidentally take pills.
Other causes include the accidental ingestion of pesticides or other chemical products such as disinfectants, bleach and ammonia.
Founded on January 15, 2008, the Regional Toxicology Center offers comprehensive treatments to all patients suffering from intoxication including offering a 24-hour telephone helpline.
