Hello everyone, hope you're having a good evening. I work at an ALF, as a PCT. My primary duty is passing morning medications to around 50 residents. In addition to the medications, (we have residents that take up to 15 am meds at one time) we have routine wound care, nebulizer treatments, insulin sliding scale injections, and various suppositories, enemas, ect. We also have residents on certain medications such as coreg, which have parameters based on their B/P and pulse which takes up quite a bit of time. I'm starting to feel overwhelmed, and my company doesn't seem overly concerned. We are lucky to have a nurse at our building half of the time, and it is annoying to have to call 5 people over a medication discrepancy. *phew got off topic, back to it*. When I was first told I would be trained on meds, I was really surprised that a non licensed person could be responsible for medications at all. They replied that because it was medication "reminders" and not "administration", it was all legal and fine. I don't personally understand how when i'm giving eyedrops, administering insulin, and physically squirting roxanol in someone's mouth how I am "reminding" them to take their meds. I feel that i'm good at passing meds, but only because I am very careful and always self educate. The other people that I work with, I have less confidence in them. We were given an 8 hour course which was basically bullocks, no pharmacology training, and weren't even trained on injections. I want this facility to have trained nurses passing medications, and I feel like something is amiss, but I can't find any concrete information about the rules in michigan! Does anyone else work in a facility like this? Any help or information? Sorry this was so long, I just appreciate all of your input and could use a little help.
