This study was designed to characterize poisoning deaths in Rhode Island and to determine the incidence of poisoning deaths that are not reported to the regional poison center.
The records of the state medical examiner were reviewed retrospectively for all toxin-related deaths from January 1986 through December 1989, and those deaths were compared with deaths recorded by the poison center during the same period.
All patients whose deaths were due to a toxic substance and were recorded by either the state medical examiner's office or the regional poison center during the four-year study period.
