Passing Medications Part 2: ASCP's Medication Administration Series expands the scope of this in-service training series to include medication administration techniques and related areas of concern such as infection control, resident dignity and safety. Medication administration strategies and operational aspects are also explored.

Part 2 of the series consists of three modules. The modules average 15-30 minutes in length to accommodate the limited time available for staff training. Testing is provided for each module with CE available upon completion of cumulative testing.

Module Topics:

 
  • Preparing and Administering Injectable Medications in the Long Term Care Setting

In addition to detailed guidance for the three primary injection methods utilized in long-term care (intradermal, subcutaneous and intramuscular) this module covers key elements vital to regulatory compliance including resident dignity, infection control and safe needle practices, vaccination consent, staff authorized to administer injections and much more.

  • Transcription, Taking Verbal Orders and Medication Documentation Review

A large portion of medication errors can be traced to errors in transcribing verbal orders from prescribers and inaccurate medication-related documentation. Follow a resident from admission through discharge, as key safety and compliance practices are identified that can help reduce medication error rates. Staff will learn to properly transcribe admission orders, take verbal orders and complete medication-related documentation.

  • Overcoming the Challenges of Medication Administration

Using case-scenarios, this module addresses medication administration-related concerns and presents effective strategies to help the long-term care nurse distinguish actual medication refusals from other problems the resident may be having with medication administration. This module addresses the core question: How can nurses effectively promote medication compliance while ensuring all resident rights guaranteed by law remain uncompromised?
