A Heads Up


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.
