Because you don't know when it was consumed, the best way to address this is to take him to an ER vet. They will induce vomiting to clear any in his stomach, give him activated charcoal to keep his body from absorbing the contents that may have made it out of the stomach and usually this activated charcoal contains a non-absorbable sugar which causes them to evacuate their bowels (another effort to keep their body from absorbing the bait).

Unfortunately, the active ingredient in this type of rat bait causes neurological problems. There's more info here: http://www.petmd.com/dog/conditions/toxicity/c_multi_bromethalin_rodenticide_toxicity# The time it can take for symptoms to onset can be hours to weeks later, so immediate treatment and prevention is necessary.
