It is the responsibility of all care providers, irrespective of the type of service being run, to handle medications in the safest manner possible. Irrespective of the type of service being run, it is the responsibility of all care providers to apply the highest standards of safety to medication management. Care providers are required to demonstrate that the standards of care as proscribed by the Care Quality Commission (Outcome 9, Regulation 13) are met.

CQC Compliant Drug & Medications Management

Subsequently, all care services are expected to ensure that medicines are received, handled, stored, administered, disposed of and recorded in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements, as well as best practice recommendations.

The QCS Medications Management Module is highly effective at achieving compliance in this demanding area. The QCS medication audit tool helps you ensure this is the case while the medication risk assessment forms ensure that risk areas are not overlooked. This module was designed to help you manage medications with confidence through a stable and secure medications policy.
