ULP Medicaion Administration

  1. 0

    I am a RN of about 6 months and the new RN manager of a home care company. I had a question with regards to Unlicensed Assistive personnel passing medicaions in Minnesota. I was taught (as a LPN in assisted living of 2 years) that all medicaitons had to be setup in a "medistrip, or medibox" before the ULP could administer them. However where I manage now the previous nurse left the ULP take the medicaions out of the bottle if they were OTC or on occassion prescribed. I am not sure of the legalities of this. Any suggestions or can anyone point me to a MN rule or regulation that specifically talks about this? In my opinion all "bottles" should be locked and only a liminited amout of any drug should be avaliable to the ULP.

    Thank you in advance
