Pittsburgh Poison Center

Description of Services

Staffed 24 hours a day, the Pittsburgh Poison Center (PPC) responds each year to more than 150,000 requests for poison information from the general public and medical professionals. There is no fee for this service. To ensure treatment excellence, the PPC developed a network of hospital treatment centers throughout Pennsylvania, which provides medical consultation and follow-up for all cases of poison exposure that have been referred.

With the Mr. Yuk™ poison warning symbol as its focal point, the PPC conducts comprehensive, continuing poison prevention education programs with the belief that it is better to prevent an accidental poisoning than to treat one. For Mr. Yuk stickers, educational materials or questions about the Mr. Yuk program, please visit our online store.
