How Our Medication Lock Box is Helping with Safe-Guarding in Social Care

Medicine locked away in a medication lock box while a child plays in a kitchen

Foster parents are held to certain standards to ensure children get the highest quality of care. One of these standards is that medical or potentially hazardous items should be clearly labelled and placed out of reach from children. The reasoning behind this is so children can not accidentally ingest something that could be potentially harmful. Our medication lock box can help you to reach and abide by these standards, by reducing medicine related safeguarding incidents, in a simple and effective manner. 

The goal of these rules is to eliminate access. Our medication lock box could be provided as standard by social care companies to ensure children in care get the highest level of care. In addition, Lockabox can help support social workers when they have responsibilities for medicine support within an agreed written and documented care plan. This makes sure there is a clear process for communicating and sharing information about a person’s medical needs.

Our medication lock box acts as a deterrent. The three digit combination lock means that items can be securely locked away. It can be easily implemented in the home due to being flexible and adaptable and prevents curious young children from accidentally getting their hands on medicine and causing themselves harm.

How can the Lockabox One be used?

It is suggested that several boxes would be needed in the home environment, these would include: 

  • A box for family medicine 
  • A box for external medicine 
  • A box per child in foster care 
  • A box for refrigerated items 
  • A box for any person taking controlled substances

Box clever

Our secret weapon is our patented clam-shell design (which gives the Lockabox its strength) combined with tough polycarbonate, and the best British manufacturing that doesn’t use glue and is BPA safe.
