​Toxicology Question of the Week

May 15, 2019

In Tennessee, What are the Top Substances in Poison Exposures and in Which Counties do They Occur?

Attached is our annual report for your perusal.  We continue to keep people out of the Emergency Department (which saves healthcare dollars) and help manage critical overdose patients in ICUs and Emergency Departments.  Our educational outreach covers the entire state.  Our staff is secondary to none (just ask the Fellows and Residents who have done toxicology rotations with us).   I would be happy to answer any questions you have about the annual report.
