The need for personalised storage solutions in care homes
The daily administration of medicines plays a large part in care home culture which means a robust medicines policy needs to be regularly maintained and reviewed, most importantly, the safeguarding of residents is paramount. The social care institute for excellence states that person-centered and relationship centered care and support should be at the heart of the service offered by residential care homes (SCIE.org, 2019). Part of personalised care involves storing medicines in a more collaborative and individualised way for the patient. Self-administered medicines, are medicines that patients can administer themselves, such as topical lotions, thickening agents and creams, the CQC state that these should be stored based on the individual’s risk, but recommend a lockable cupboard, or draw. Here is where our lockable medicine box can help.
How does our lockable medicine box assist with medicine storage, administration & management?
Since the first sale in 2015 it has become apparent how important Lockabox is for the application and storage of tablets, prescription creams and any other pharmaceutical paraphernalia in care environments. Our lockable medicine box is a viable solution to encourage & support patients administering their own medication, whilst securing the medicines away. A designated box to provide a clear space and understanding between the relationship of resident and carer, reducing anxiety, empowering the individual and improving resident experience.
What can you store in our medicine box?
“Most to all residents have a Lockabox to store topical creams & lotions. The main reason was the quality of care provided at their homes. The Lockabox was being used not only for dementia patients but for all residential clients too. We are very satisfied with the product for its current use around administering and providing a level of security for this type of application. Haven’t had any problems!”
