Coming up for Accreditation?
In 2018, most aged care facilities will be assessed for re-accreditation. Meditrax is mindful that unannounced visits will replace scheduled accreditation visits*.
Meditrax can provide the instrumental tool in meeting accreditation standard 2.7, medication management with the latest checklist.
“Care recipients’ medication is managed safely and correctly!”
This checklist can be a useful resource to ensure that your facility is ready. Topics include:
Policies and Procedures
Medication Advisory Committee
Review of Medication
The checklist is a three-page electronic document with additional areas for management/nursing staff to formulate an action plan if required. The checklist may also be useful for monthly facility internal audits as well.
*Quality review released: aged care assessments visits to be unannounced.
Announced accreditation visits will be replaced with unannounced audits across Australia’s residential aged care facilities, to help ensure safe, quality care standards are maintained at all centres at all times.
