Acute poisoning in children is still an important public health problem and represents a frequent cause of admission in emergency units. Homes are the place meant to be safe and secure. However, home accidents are the most frequent causes of injury. This gives the impression that homes are not so safe as one may think.

Low social standard and high social mobility increase the likehood of accidental poisoning since safe keeping of toxic preparations is not followed, parents are likely to be less knowledgeable about the risks, supervision may be less strict and in disturbed families hunger may be stimulus to ingestion of harmful substances. The epidemimiological surveillance specific for each country is necessary to determine the extent and characteristics of the problem, according to which related preventive measures can be taken.
