When to Seek Medical Care
If any person suspects or knows that they have been exposed to any forms of mercury, they should seek medical care immediately. If a child, teen, or adult is suspected or known to ingest a battery of any type, they should be brought to an emergency center. Early medical treatment may prevent or lessen the toxic effects of mercury poisoning. Most physicians are urged to notify their local poison control center and a medical specialist in toxicology and use them as consultants. In the United States, the National Poison Control Center Hotline phone number is 1-800-222-1222.
