Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients may require transfer to a psychiatric facility for evaluation and treatment after an intentional ingestion if they are hemodynamically stable and if they have no evidence of CNS complications.

  • Patients may require transfer to a toxicology treatment facility for further evaluation and treatment if severe symptoms are present or expected. Transfer with appropriate precautions and only after discussion with the receiving medical toxicologist.
