How does a provider comply with the Medication Administration training criteria in 245D?
Generally it is the criteria stated in the HCBS Sample Policy Safe Medication Assistance and Administration Policy, but one item is frequently missed. The provider must “use procedures established in consultation with a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant or medical doctor.” This means that you can receive extensive training and numerous certificates, but if your procedure were not established in consultation with one of the above, you are not compliant.
At Noske Law Firm we provide the services needed to insure our clients are compliant.
Reading the above does not create an Attorney-Cleint relationship or the rendering of legal advice.
