Hi
Think of refusal to take life saving meds ; people who want to die;people who cry when you try to give meds; people who become angry thinking your trying to poison them ( especially prevelent with dementia) how would you deal with the above? you would follow organsational P&P on how to deal with differing situations, you would work within your level of organsation, seek guidance from senior, inform care managment /GP
I once contacted out of hours GP as a service user refused her drugs the whole day, he said unless they are life -saving meds most people have a build up of medication in their systems and it would not harm them . But you have covered yourself following procedures.
Remember to write about recording and reporting of any issues around meds

Hope this helps
