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 all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 04/04/2012, observed how people were being cared for, talked to staff and talked to people who use services.

Our judgement

The provider was compliant in this regulation.

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

User experience

We spoke with people using the services but their feedback did not relate to this standard.

Other evidence

When we visited Georgina House on 04 April 2012, we found that medicines were prescribed and given to people appropriately. Two of the three people who lived at this home were prescribed regular medication. We saw from health action plans that medication was reviewed regularly by the doctor.

We looked at the Medication Administration Record (MAR) sheets for both of these people, and checked them against the stock in the home. We found that medication was safely stored, and the MAR sheets were appropriately completed with staff signatures, or omission codes if for any reason it had not been given. We carried out a stock check against the MAR sheets, and found that these all corresponded accurately.
