The Washington Poison Center collects data on incoming calls with records dating back to 1999. Data is available on all types of exposures, and can be stratified in numerous ways based on data selection criteria such as age, gender, substance(s) involved, type of exposure (dermal, ocular, etc.), reason for exposure, geographic identifiers, medical outcome, etc. All cases are coded according to NPDS recommended coding standards.
All data requests must be presented to the Washington Poison Center using our Data Request Form and are fulfilled at the discretion of the Washington Poison Center.
Data on incoming calls from other poison centers may be available upon request by the Washington Poison Center, or by contacting the American Association of Poison Control Centers, AAPCC.
