Medication specific to each call

ros.holder 2 years ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication updated by Stephen Vaughan 2 years ago 3

It would be really helpful and cut down on user error if the medications that are visible to carers are specific to the call they are attending. 


It is also very difficult to make sure that the varying doses of warfarin are clear. we have clients for example who have 3mg Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and 2.5mg on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. 


Maybe being able to highlight in red would help. 


We are also having problems with a medication that is taken every other day. There isn't anyway of checking which day it has been taken and which day it hasn't unless it is written on the notes. It should be possible to make it work within the medication part of the app.

Medication end date needed

Harley Bird 3 years ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication updated by Stephen Vaughan 2 years ago 3

Hi,


Would be good to have an end date for medication.. For example if a service user has an ongoing medication that will end on a particular date it would be good to be able to set an end date..


The issue with setting "Not Required" is firstly that it has to be done on the day so you have to remember to go and end it and secondly when setting "Not Required" the medication appears to disappear off the MAR page completely, even when going back a week, so we loose the history (this maybe simply be a bug though)..


Thanks,

Harley

identifying when to take medication

mchereford 2 years ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication updated by Stephen Vaughan 2 years ago 1

Hi, 

I need to be able for staff to visibly see when to administer medication ie black and white boxes, white is to administer, black is when it is not administered

Putting this information in the comments box may not work and I, as a Manager have to be aware of mistakes and safeguards

Self medication

When there is no medication input on the MAR sheet currently it says "No medication".  Could this be changed to "Self medicates -  no assistance required" and make it stand out a bit more?

Time Critical Call

Tim Brigham 1 year ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication 0

Could we have the option to make certain medication calls Time Specific/Critical so that the time of the call cannot be altered. Often medication has to be taken at specific times, such as Parkinsons Meds. Maybe a different colour to the call to show it IS time specific.

Add verbally prompt medication or be able to set up our own

On mar charts give you the option to add verbally prompt only instead of listing all medication

MAR Chart - Carer Initials

Severn Sunrise 2 years ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication 0

With regard to the MAR charts, we have carers who have the same first & last initials so it is difficult to see who has actually given the medication without going into each and every one. Is it possible for the initials of the carer who gives the medication to be shown as up to 3 characters instead of the current 2 characters – this will enable us to use middle names to differentiate between carers.

Missed medication alert

Wayne Osborne 2 years ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication updated by Stephen Vaughan 2 years ago 1

Would it be possible to have an email alert when medication isn't administered at a call visit in the same way that when a carer a client note??

Blank Space for emergency medication

Obi 3 years ago in Pure CareForIT / Medication updated by Stephen Vaughan 2 years ago 0

We are currently printing off the MAR chart from Careforit and sending across to Carers to complete manually (the e-MAR chart has not really worked for us). We would like to be able to enter a couple of blank spaces in case of emergency medication.
