Industry issues take centre stage. Part 1 – Safeguarding medication management

At a time of increased industry complexity, combined with continual scrutiny from both government departments and the general public, Aged Care Providers need to be mindful of delivering a high level of care and accountability. Moving the sector from a heavy reliance on paper-based systems to fully integrated e-Health solutions is one-way Providers can address some of these important concerns they face.

Safeguarding the medication management of residents in aged care facilities is one of the crucial industry issues under the spotlight at many forums and in industry reports. The current Aged Care Royal Commission has indicated this as a significant area of focus and it has also been at the centre of the recent Aged Care Complaints Commissioner’s 2017–18 Annual Report relating to residential aged care. Administration of the correct medications, at the correct times and in the right dosages can be a major health concern for patients in aged care facilities. Having a consistent and reliable administration process with regular medication audits is an important aspect for a quality assurance approach and critical for patient safety.
