Who We Are
The Carolinas Poison Center is designated as the official state poison center for North Carolina. We are a not-for-profit telephone resource center assisting callers who have poison emergencies or questions about poisons. Staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by registered nurses (Specialists in Poison Information), our Specialists are uniquely trained to provide advice for poisonings to the public and healthcare providers. Board-certified medical toxicologists and pharmacists provide backup for the Specialists and are available for consultations 24 hours a day. All of our services are given at no charge to the caller.

Mission Statement
