During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We observed part of the morning medicines round. Patient support was offered where people needed help when taking their medicines. People were asked whether they wanted their “when required” medicines and staff took time to explain to one person that they had started a new medicine. One person we spoke with managed one of their own medicines. They did not raise any concerns with us. However, we found a lack of written information in support of the safe administration of medicines that increased the risk of errors, or of inconsistency in medicines use. We also saw that the evening and night time medicines rounds were very close together. This means that people may not receive most benefit from taking their medicines, and are at greater risk of suffering side-effects.
