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

Overall, we found that this essential standard was met.

We found that appropriate systems were in place for the management of medication and the training for staff.

User experience

We did not speak to people about this outcome.

Other evidence

At the last inspection we found that the management of medication was not robust enough and that this needed to be developed further.

We found that much work had been implemented since the last inspection. Policies and procedures had been updated and staff had received training. They had also had their medication competencies assessed. We saw certificates to confirm that training had taken place and completed competency records. Staff also discussed the training they had received and they confirmed they had been observed administering medication.
