Poison Center Information
The Oregon Poison Center is a 24-hour health care information and treatment resource serving Oregon, Alaska and Guam.
The poison center was established by an act of the Oregon State Legislature in 1978 to provide emergency treatment information for patients experiencing a poisoning or toxic exposure. The Oregon Poison Center is also responsible for providing public outreach and education to health care professionals. The Poison Center staff is made up of doctors and nurses trained in toxicology. Our staff handles nearly 60,000 calls a year.
The Oregon Poison Center Web site is NOT a substitute for talking with a trained Poison Specialist. In the case of an emergency, you should always contact your regional poison control center (1 800 222-1222) or 911 emergency services for help.
- This information is from Sherwood School District Policy “Pediculosis [Head Lice]”
- (Piojos De La Cabeza in Spanish)
The Board recognizes that district programs should be conducted in a manner that protects and enhances student and employee health and is consistent with recognized health practices. Consequently, in order to prevent the spread of pediculosis (head lice) in the school setting, district staff shall institute guidelines for classrooms that will assist in the prevention and spread of head lice. Students with suspected cases of lice will be referred to the school nurse or administrator or designated personnel for assessment. Students found with live lice will be excluded from school. Students excluded from school will be readmitted after assessment by designated personnel to confirm no lice are present. Students found with nits (lice eggs) only or returning after exclusion with the presence of nits only will not be excluded, but will be subject to periodic checks to confirm continuing absence of live lice.
Successful treatment of head lice requires a coordinated approach and may involve the use of antilouse products, combing, and implementation of preventative measures recommended by health authorities. The district will provide parents of students found to have contracted head lice with treatment information. It is the district’s intent to not only eliminate the current infestation, but also to prevent a repeat episode.
The superintendent will develop administrative regulations, as necessary, to implement this policy.
