This descriptive study examined factors that influence use of poison-prevention measures and poison control center resources in a black, low-income, inner-city community.
Convenience sampling was used to recruit 32 mothers of children under age 10 years at two federally funded health centers and two community food pantries.
Participants were interviewed using a semistructured interview schedule.
Data were analyzed qualitatively, with the results indicating that the majority of mothers had a considerable degree of awareness regarding poisoning susceptibility, severity, and prevention.
