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

Our judgement

The home made sure the medicines given were appropriate and that medicines were reviewed and changed as peoples' needs or condition changed.

User experience

One person said, "The staff here are good, they help me when I need it , but let me make my own decisions as far as I am able".

Another person said, "I like living here, we go to the theatre and football matches".

Other evidence

The manager told us that all staff who gave medication had been trained to do so. She also told us that a sample medication audit was carried out monthly by a senior person within the company.

There were no medication errors reported.
