A Heads Up From a flowerSoft User
Heads up for some of your members.
I just went to one of our hospitals (local) and they declined our poinsettia for a customer for possible exposure of latex.
Apparently the milky liquid secreted by the branch or leaf when broken, if it gets in contact with someone, patient or staff, may cause a reaction. However, I cannot speak for all Hospitals, and i have not spoken to any more hospitals since this particular one.
I am just putting it out there this may happen. This is News to me this year, who knows maybe there are more flowers that carry a latex substance/secretion, I don’t know.
