Care Quality Matters

Medication Toolkit

£34.95 GBP
Plus VAT

You’re probably very aware that giving medication is one of the biggest risk areas in your care home. A recent study on the Prevalence and Economic Burden of Medication Errors found that over 238 million medication errors are recorded in England each year – of which a disturbing 42% are in care homes: that’s nearly 100 million potentially costly mistakes!

But we’re here to tell you that while the situation is certainly serious, it’s far from hopeless. In fact, with the right systems in place, it’s perfectly possible to reduce your error count to zero.

Inside our toolkit you'll find 37 documents:

  • 3 how-to articles on competency, covert medication and auditing your medication giving
  • 20 checklists to make sure you keep on top of all medication needs
  • Medication policy
  • Examples and tests for medication competency
