Answer

The regional poison control center or a medical toxicologist should be consulted in all cases of suspected poisoning. A pediatric psychiatrist should be consulted if intentional ingestion is suspected.  Child protective services should be notified if inadequate supervision or Münchhausen syndrome by proxy is suspected.
