Question and answer
Identify who is responsible for medication in a social care setting
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.

The nurse remains
responsible and accountable for the appropriateness of the delegation.
