The Carolinas Poison Center is designated as the official state poison center for North Carolina. We are a not-for-profit telephone resource center of poisoning information, staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by registered nurses (Specialists in Poison Information) who are uniquely trained to provide diagnostic and treatment advice for acute and chronic poisonings to the public and healthcare providers. Board-certified medical toxicologists and pharmacists provide backup for the Specialists and are available for consultations 24 hours a day. All of our services are given at no charge to the caller.
How We Are Funded
The Carolinas Poison Center receives funding through state and federal grants and from individual donations. If you would like to support the important work that we do, please visit our Donations page. We thank you for your generosity!
