Dental CQC Medication Management
Every Practice has a responsibility to manage any medications used or stored in the practice in a safe and responsible way. Practitioners and other staff need to show that Outcome 9 of the CQC Essential Standards is being acknowledged and followed.
Consequently, all staff are expected to follow due procedure in receiving, handling, storage, administering and disposing of medications and medicaments. There are particular Statutes and Regulations which apply in addition to good practice and safety procedures. This is an area sometimes forgotten about in General Dental Practice , but an essential area to ensure safe and effective treatment of patients.
