On 30th March 2017, NICE released new guidelines for managing medicines for adults receiving social care in the community.
Did you know…?
- You must record the medicines support given to a person for each individual medicine on every occasion
- When a family member gives a medicine e.g. during a day out, you must agree with the person/ family member how this will be recorded
- When a person declines their medicine, you should consider waiting a short while before offering it again
- You need to ensure there is an up-to-date Patient Information Leaflet for each medicine supplied, in the person’s home (including medicines supplied in monitored dosage systems)
