Developing policies and procedures
All steps should be taken to implement methods to reduce medicines management errors. This will help you maintain and improve patient safety and ensure you are fully prepared for an inspection by the Care Quality Commission.
The key is to ensure the safe and effective use of medication.
An important part of achieving this is ensuring you have developed robust and compliant policies and procedures for medication in your hospital. This will ensure you’re gaining the maximum benefit from the tools and resources you have at your disposal and will give you the best possible chance of achieving compliance with Care Quality Commission regulations and standards.
Working in support of your clinical governance framework, our pharmacists will help you review your internal policies and modify them as necessary to comply with current standards and regulations. They will help ensure all of your medicines policies and procedures work together to ensure the medication audit trails within your hospital are complete and robust.
We will ensure all of your policies and procedures for medication are compliant with required standards for the Care Quality Commission, Healthcare Improvement Scotland and Healthcare Inspectorate Wales.
Helping you develop your medicines policies and procedures is just one way we can help you ensure you have end-to-end evidence of your compliant use of medicines. We will also:
- Provide support during announced inspections
- Provide a wide range of prescription charts and documentation systems
- Establish a complete medication audit trail in your hospital
