    Default Suspected accidental med ingestion- no symptoms??

    AAPC: Back to School
    A parent brings their child to the ED. They saw them eat a pill, and are worried he may have poisoned himself. No symptoms are noted, and labs are negative for the several drugs they tested for.

    What could you use for a diagnosis?
