“Care homes must keep a record of all controlled drugs obtained and supplied in a bound book or register with numbered pages. It is also good practice to keep separate records of inpatients using their own controlled drugs, which have been prescribed and dispensed in the community.”
‘Controlled drugs in Primary Care’ by Nigel Morley
Dispex as a leading supplier of Controlled Drug Registers, has designed a Supply and Administration of Controlled Drugs Register specifically for use in care homes. The Supply and Administration Controlled Drugs Register is especially suited for private care homes where controlled drugs are personally administered to patients. It is also extremely useful where medication is wasted or part dosages occur.
If you deal with Controlled Drugs we have the solution. Dispex can supply you with in-house training on Controlled Drugs, denaturing kits and primary care standard fridges at great prices. We also run training courses aimed at GP practices, but many of the principles of Controlled Drugs purchasing, storage and supply are just as relevant to the care home environment.
