Policy for the Management and Administration of Medication
Devon County Council and the NEW Devon CCG Medications Optimisation Team have reviewed their Policy for the Management and Administration of Medication in DCC’s in-house care homes and respite units.
The Policy reflects the NICE Managing Medicines in Care Homes guidance, published in 2014, checked by NICE in December 2017. We are making the Policy available for care home providers to consider when reviewing or updating their own medication policies. The Policy shows the elements expected in a care home medication policy but each home’s own medication policy should accurately reflect how medicines are handled within that specific home.
