Medication Administration

All medications are administered by medication certified staff. Medications are reviewed by the Delegating Nurse within 48 hours of admission to the facility and at least every 45 days thereafter. Medication technicians are certified to administer insulin injections, oral medications, eye/ear/nose drops and or ointments.

A licensed Pharmacist also reviews the profile of each resident with more than 9 medications including all prescription and non-prescription medications and tube feedings for the potential for any adverse drug interaction and the potential of harmful side effects from these medications.
