Topic: Health & Wellness / Medication administration in small jails

Our system has been revised once again, hopefully for the better. As officers, we are now dispensing the medications straight from the bottles, following the perscribed dosage. This has eliminated some of the issues we have had as far as the blister packs being shorted certain medications and not knowing which medication was missing. So far, so good. It is a little slow, but it minimizes the stress of not knowing which medications you were possibly signing for that were missing.

Topic: Health & Wellness / Medication administration in small jails

We too are concerned about the legality of passing medications without any traing other than OJT. Most of the meds are prepackaged by medical staff and may not have an accurate count on each medication or they may be listed by brand name on the bottle, but are listed by the generic name on the med sheet. Does anyone have any information regarding the legality of unntrained staff passing medications?
