Administration of Medicines Policy

Aim: To ensure safe storage and administration of medication to pupils and staff by the nurses, house

Storage
All medications are kept in a locked cupboard in a room not normally accessible to pupils. In the Medical
Centre medicines that require refrigeration are kept in a locked medicine fridge. In the boarding houses
medicines that require refrigeration are kept in the housemistresses own fridge.
Controlled drugs
Controlled drugs (CDs) are stored in the medical centre in a CD cabinet. If required they are stored in the
boarding houses in a locked area that only a limited number staff have access to. The drugs are brought
in by the parents or pupil for day pupils and by the parents or pupil or collected from the pharmacy by the
matron for boarders. It is not always practical for two staff members to be present when a CD is
administered, but a record of the amount given and the balance remaining is kept in a bound record book
with numbered pages. There is a separate page for each person. CDs are disposed of by returning
them to the pharmacy and a record of the returns kept in the CD record book.
Disposal of medicines
Any unused prescribed medications and any out of date OTC medications will be returned to the Medical
Centre and from there to the pharmacy for disposal. The cupboards are checked for surplus medications
at the end of every term.
Replacing stock homely remedies in boarding houses
A record is kept of the stock supplied to the boarding houses, including the amount issued, issue date
and expiry date.
Non- Prescribed Medications
These are available to boarding pupils, day pupils and staff. The boarding staff have access and are
trained, by the school nurse, to give the attached list of medications.
The secretary at Prep School issue Paracetamol only, to pupils and staff in the absence of the school
nurse. They too sign a protocol. Boarding staff email the Medical Coordinator when they issue a
medication. This is then added to the pupil’s individual record.
The Medical Coordinator/Boarding staff administer non prescribed medications under a homely remedies
protocol.
Prescribed Medications
Medication prescribed by a doctor should be administered according to the instructions on the individual
medication and only given to the named pupil to whom it has been prescribed. They should be kept
in their original container. The original dispensing label must not be altered. The protocol should be the
same as for non prescribed medications.
A form ‘pupils taking short term prescribed medication’ should be completed by those staff giving the
medication to the pupil. Appendix 2
Adverse reactions
Drugs can cause adverse reactions in some people. If a pupil experiences adverse reaction to a
medication do not give any further doses until instructed to do so by the doctor. A medical incident form
should be completed. See Appendix 3
If a serious reaction occurs medical attention should be sought immediately.
An adverse reaction should be reported by the nurses to the Medicine and Healthcare products
Regulatory Agency (www.mhra.gov.uk)

Medicines given in error
If an error is made with any medication advice must be sort immediately. During the day contact the
surgery 01691 653143 or ShropDoc 08444 068888.
A medical incident form should be completed explaining the error and any action taken. See Appendix 3.

Medication brought into school by the pupils
There are risks that prescribed medications will interact with medications purchased over the counter and
cause harm. Or that herbal or traditional medications could interact with prescribed or over the counter
medications. Over the counter medication should never be given to a pupil who has taken their
own medicine.
A record will be kept of any medications that the pupils bring into school. It is the schools policy that the
pupils do not bring in their own medications unless they are prescribed, but some always will.
Self administration of medications
Boarders assessed as being able to self medicate sign the appropriate form. See Appendix 4. The pupil
should be aware that they must keep their medicines in a secure place, and not give their medication to
anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms.
The school has a protocol for assessing the ability of the pupils to self administer their medications. See
attached – Appendix 5.
Administration to save a life
In extreme emergencies e.g. an anaphylactic reaction, certain medicines can be given or supplied
without the direction of a doctor, or without there being a patient group directive PGD, for the purpose of
saving life. In an extreme emergency a medication e.g. adrenalin would be given. (Article 7 of the
Prescription Only Medicines (Human Use) Order 1997).
Recording
Medications are recorded to provide a complete audit trail for all medications. Signatures are kept of
every person who administers medication. The records are checked frequently by the school nurses.
The Headmaster is aware of the methods used to keep records, but does not review the records himself.
In Boarding Houses, the records are recorded in a book, and copied onto the pupils’ personal file on a
week day basis. This makes it possible to follow an audit trail for the treatment. E.g. where a boarder is
issued Paracetamol in the boarding house by a matron and then later in the medical centre by the nurse,
both entries are recorded in the one place. When a boarder is given medication by the nurses after
midday the boarding houses are notified.

The criteria used to assess the pupils are:
 The age of the pupil
 Whether the medication is long term or a short course  Whether the pupil has proven himself or herself to be reliable in general and will remember to take the medication if it is to be taken regularly.  That the pupil understands why they are taking the medication and any side effects, and the risks of overdose.  That the pupil knows when and how to take the medication.  That the pupil can effectively store the medication in a locked area.  That the pupil understands that they should never give the medicine to anyone else, even if they have
