If you have an after-hours emergency that needs immediate attention and cannot wait the five or ten minutes that it may take for us to call back, bring your child directly to the nearest emergency room and ask them to call us for you. 

The Massachusetts Poison Control Center is open 24 hours a day for consultation regarding known or possible exposures to poisons. Their phone number is (800) 682-9211. If you have Ipecac in the house, do not use it unless advised to do so by one of us or by the Poison Control Center.
