Covert Administration of Medicines
Guidance for the Covert Administration of Medicines in Care Home Settings
Oldham Safeguarding Adults Board (OSAB) endorses the Greater Manchester Medicines Management Group and Greater Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups 'Guidance for the Covert Administration of Medicines in Care Home Settings'. The document provides guidance to health and social care professionals and care home staff working with care homes in Greater Manchester, who may be considering the use of covert administration for a resident or already administering medicines covertly as part of an agreed treatment plan for a resident. It is expected that any care home’s covert administration policy will be aligned with this guidance document.
