Question and answer
Identify who is responsible for medication in a social care setting
In establishments where trained nursing staff are employed, the nurse is responsible for his/her own practice and must work within the NMC guidelines for the administration of medicines. [ [ Where a nurse delegates any responsibility to another care worker, the nurse must ensure the competence of the care worker and that the delegation does not compromise existing care. The nurse remains
responsible and accountable for the appropriateness of the delegation. The National Minimum Standards require the registered person puts in place policies and procedures for the receipt, recording, storage, administration and disposal of medicines. These policies and procedures are to protect not only the service users but also staff, who are responsible for the administration of medication. All staff have a duty of care to the service users and should be appropriately trained before undertaking any medication administration. ] ]

Explain why medication must only be handled following specialist training
Weegy: Medication must only be handled by people with the specific training to ensure that the medication is handled properly that the correct dosage is given and to make sure that the medication is only given to the person it is intended for. [ Also a person who is not trained will not know what side effects can occur or the signs of an allergic reaction. this could lead to disciplinary action and could also lead to legal action which would give the service provider a bad reputation and could end up with the suspension of the providers license or even the closure of the care setting. ] (More)
