Ensuring safe and effective administration of medications to clients is an important component of nursing care.This document provides guidelines for registered nurses to administer medications safely and effectively in most practice settings [ [ (articulated in the shaded, boxed areas of the document).These guidelines are built on the SRNA Standards and Foundation Competencies for the Practice of Registered Nurses, Effective March 1, 2007 to provide direction for developing policies and structures which contribute to quality systems related to medication administration. In quality practice
settings policies are necessary to facilitate consistent medication administration practices and support for registered nurses in providing safe, quality care. Effective policies consider the clients, their needs and the resources available to meet those needs.The SRNA promotes the development of these policies in conjunction with nursing staff so that they accurately reflect the realities of the practice setting. Registered nurses are required to advocate for policies in their practice setting when policies do not exist. These guidelines are not intended to replace legal advice for specific practice settings.Agencies or individual registered nurses may need to consult their own legal counsel or a pharmacist for advice about legislation on medication administration specific to their area of practice.There are provincial and federal statutes and regulations that relate to the legal responsibilities of registered nurses with regard to the administration of drugs. .............. ] ]
