People should be given the medicines they need when they need them, and in a safe way (outcome 9)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Will have their medicines at the times they need them, and in a safe way.
  • Wherever possible will have information about the medicine being prescribed made available to them or others acting on their behalf.

How this check was done

We reviewed information given to us by the provider.

Our judgement

People were protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had appropriate arrangements in place to manage medicines.

Reasons for our judgement

At our previous inspection in October 2013 we found the provider had some medical gases in the treatment area which had expired and the stock records for these therapies had not been reviewed or updated. The provider was required to take action.

The provider has provided evidence of the immediate actions taken to address the non compliance. We have seen the delivery note dated 16 October 2013 and the provider's "gases - drug log" which demonstrate that the out of date cylinders were removed and replaced with gases that were not due to expire until 2016. The provider has also confirmed the medical gases are checked regularly and always before any procedures take place.
