Errors While Administering Medication
In nursing homes, staff members are required to create, update, and follow a medication plan for each resident. Additionally, nursing home managers are legally required to ensure their staff are properly trained and qualified to administer both prescription medications and medical treatment in accordance with residents’ plans. Consequently, there is no excuse for:
- Missing Medication Times
- Failing To Provide Needed and Prescribed Medication
- Providing an Improper Medication Dose
- Mixing Up Residents’ Prescriptions
