We have a quadriplegic patient that has home care aides for most of the day, the RN sets up his medications for the week and the aides put the medications in his mouth to swallow. I think they are also taking PRN medications out of the prescription bottles and administering. I thought aides in home care could only give patients reminders, not actually put the medication in the patients mouth. My DON said it's fine if it came from a med set up, anyone know for sure??? He has a wife, so I don't know why the aides are doing it anyways.
