Medication Administration in Residential Care

The underlying principle of the Medication Administration in Residential Care policy is that service users should be encouraged, following a suitable risk assessment, to retain, control and administer their own medication in order to maximise their independence and retain control over their own lives.

In practice, some adults and young people will need help with their medication so the Medication Administration in Residential Care policy seeks to outline the procedures that staff working within a residential setting need to follow. The policy includes details of training, recording, administration details, supply, storage, disposal and how to manage errors.
