Pre-survey and following state check is fast approaching. I have a nagging question about med carts in LTC facilities, specifically Florida. Is there an existing policy for how medications need to be organized in the cart? Should it be by room/bed number or name? I seen facilities that have a combination of the two as well, I.e. narc box by name and other non controlled drugs by room/bed. But there doesn’t seem to be a lot of uniformity in facilities so I’m wondering if this is due to the lack or noncompliance of policy or up to the facility or etc. Can anyone provide an answer to this or a link to a policy? I’ve scoured the internet and can’t find anything.

If you can't find anything online maybe call the BON and ask? I had to call a few years ago for another issue and they were really nice. That being said they might be busier now with C19 stuff but it's worth a try.
