We only have registered nurses and staff trained to administer medications at our homes, best practice guidelines for residential aged care state that medications need to be individually identifiable- not all packed together in a multi-pack, due to the amount of generic medication on the market, all tablets look different.
We are unable to accept boxed or packed medications from home as we do not know how the medications have been stored, and due to packing using the Webster Unit dose 7 system.
We are able to accept boxed medications from a hospital pharmacy for any care recipients that have been admitted directly from hospital. Our pharmacy is happy to pack these medications free of charge.
A Medication imprest is available for any emergency medications care recipients may need out of hours once they have been prescribed by a medical practitioner.
Residents who would like to self-administer medications during their stay will need to have a self-administration assessment completed by a medical practitioner and registered nurse
