Question and answer
Q: Identify who is responsible for medication in a social care setting
A: Weegy: 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. ] ]
