A Safe Kids Worldwide survey of 1,000 grandparents who watched over their grandchildren younger than age 5 on a regular basis found that 28% of them reported keeping their medications in easy-to-open containers, with 42% of those storing the drugs in places such as kitchen and bathroom counters. Medications should be stored "up and away and out of sight" so as to avoid child poisoning, CDC's Dan Budniz said.
Many grandparents store their meds within children's reach
