Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-11-06-.01 - INTRODUCTION
Public Chapter No. 393 of the Acts of 1991 authorized the Department of Health to establish and maintain a system of poison control centers in Tennessee. These rules and regulations establish the criteria and standards by which the Commissioner of Health can designate a regional poison control center in Tennessee. Designation as a regional poison control center in Tennessee should assure that the facility can provide appropriate services to the general public and health professionals which would include answering requests by telephone for poison information and making recommendations for appropriate emergency management and treatment referrals of poisoning exposures on a 24-hour a day basis. Additionally, the center would provide professional education and public awareness programs on poison prevention and center utilization, maintain a data collection system and operate within written quality control guidelines.
