Peace of mind for healthcare professionals

Is your organisation due for an inspection? 

It’s hard to keep track of guidance, compliance and legislation changes in the care industry. 

Medication audit overview

A medication audit is valuable when it comes to ensuring medication is handled appropriately in your care environment and remains fully compliant ahead of Care Quality Commission (CQC) and OFSTED inspections.

An audit will quickly identify areas that need improving to reduce medication errors, to prepare for inspection visits and avoid unnecessary CQC warnings and negative reviews.

Audit content

A friendly, qualified pharmacist will visit your organisation to conduct a thorough review. Care procedures will be assessed to ensure they meet legal and ethical requirements, policies reviewed to ensure that they are correct and that medicines administration records are accurate. A medication audit will include:

  • Label inspection
  • Medication policies
  • Medicines storage and disposal
  • Controlled drugs
  • Medicine self-administration
  • Medication round observation
  • Record keeping
  • Error reporting
  • Risk assessment
  • Medication training and competency assessment
  • Home remedies and non-prescribed medication

Following our medication audit, you will gain a comprehensive report of competence excellence and a checklist of how to make improvements. Recommendations for best practice, improving record keeping documents and policies will be provided.
