Are you aware that in recent inspection visits, over 30% of nursing homes and 21% of residential homes failed to meet CQCs' medicines management outcome standard ? (CQC Care Update Issue   March 2013).

Are your records of administration always complete and medication always available for your residents?

Do you have a clear plan to indicate how “to be taken when required “medication should be administered?

Do you really consider self-administration for your residents or are you just paying lip service with a policy and procedure that is never put into practice?

If not, you could face non-compliance with outcome 9 and also be non-compliant with outcome 21 (records) and outcome 4 (care and welfare) (CQCs National Pharmacy Manager comments June 2012), which can escalate to civil enforcement or criminal law actions.

How confident are you that your home and staff meet the essential standards?  Can you afford to take the risk of an inspection finding your standards inadequate?

Our team of expert pharmacists has unmatched experience in all aspects of medicines management, including systems design, implementation, administration and control; compliance audit and education.  We will devise a bespoke training regime specific to the needs of your business for delivery either at your premises or off site to suit you.  We offer full face-to face learning in a neutral environment which allows us to include content that engages all staff irrespective of experience.

The training is accredited by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and focuses on:

  • The importance of safe management of medicines in the care home.

  • How and why errors occur and how to prevent them.

  • The importance of keeping accurate medicines documentation.

  • Developing staff's understanding of the use of medicines for the older person.
