In response to self medication administration, if you read CMS resident's rights, etc. self med administration is a choice that is to be offered to each resident. We used to do quarterly questionaires on our residents asking does resident request to take their own medications or are they appropriate and than depending on the response than a self med administration check list was done to see if resident would be safe to do this. We could look at cognitive deficits, visual deficits, etc. anything that may interfere with safe self med administration. If a resident's response was yes that is as well as other areas to assess. My old D.O.N. did away with these which I felt was a stupid mistake but who am I? lol...I am waiting for it to creep back up with state and by the sounds of this social worker it obviously was a policy at another facility or she has been to a recent 2.0/3.0 workshop. Let us know how your facility handles this.
