Electronic Medication Administration System

November 28, 2019

We have recently moved from paper Medication Administration Records (MAR) to an electronic system. Both the Pharmacy and us have real time access to the same “one person record”, medication rounds and management are easier and the risk of human error is reduced. The Android based system has an app to ensure the “6 rights in medication administration” using photographic identification of residents and medication, further supported by 2D barcodes for each item.

  1. Right Client
  2. Right Route
  3. Right Drug
  4. Right Dose
  5. Right Time
  6. Right to Refuse

We also have access to the “Home Manager” reporting system which gives real time status reports to Managers alerting them to points such as missed doses, low stock, round duration”.

Some residents enjoyed pumpkin carving and the staff enjoyed a few too many Halloween sweets!  The carved pumpkins were displayed in our courtyard so everyone could see them.  Now Halloween is over the pumpkins are going to be fed to Cilla and Lulu, our resident sheep!
