Medication Management Process
Medication management is an integral part of a resident’s health care. It involves the safe and appropriate use of medications to achieve the best outcomes for the resident. It ensures that residents take their prescribed medications as directed and understand why they are taking them, what side effects may occur, and how to manage any potential adverse events.
The process includes monitoring the prescribing, administering, dispensing, and supplying of medications and educating residents about their medications. This ensures that all medicines are used safely and effectively to reduce the risk of medication errors.
