Join other Residential Service Providers for this WRC’s bi-monthly meeting & training. Pica is the unusual sounding name for what is a common safety concern within our system—the ingestion of non-food substances (latex gloves, cigarette butts, cleaning liquids, coins, etc.). Ingestion of non-food items can cause airway obstruction, dental injury, poisoning, and other severe internal injuries. It has also been known in some instances to lead to invasive surgery and/or death. This training will focus on effective assessment, intervention and monitoring plan to reduce this dangerous behavior. Please call (310)258-4013 to RSVP, at least one week prior to the event.
