HI HOPE SOMEBODY CAN HELP ME
EXPLAIN WHY MEDICATION MUST ONLY BE HANDLED FOLLOWING SPECIALIST TRAINING?

medication must only be handled by people with the specific training to ensure that the meddication is handled properly that the correct dosage is given and to make sure that the medication is only given to the person it is intended for. also a person who is not trained will not know what side effects can occour or the signs of an allergic reaction. this could lead to diciplinary action and could also lead to legal action which would give the service provider a bad reputation and could end up with the suspension of the providers licence or even the closure of the care setting.

hope this helps
