The Washington Poison Center Call Center Staff


The Washington Poison Center Call Center staff is comprised of expert level nurses, pharmacists, and poison information providers, who assist Washingtonians in resolving poison and toxic exposures.

We are very proud that all of our eligible Call Center staff have earned the distinction of Certified Specialist in Poison Information (CSPI), from the The American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC). In order to become certified as a Specialist in Poison Information, candidates must pass a rigorous exam that evaluates competent skill, knowledge, education and experience to provide poison information to the public, healthcare providers and public health agencies.

Our Call Center team is always here to help, 24/7/365, by calling: 1 (800) 222-1222.
