Covert Administration of Medication Policy

This document outlines the Care Home’s policy on the administration of covert medication to a resident. The practice of offering medication in food or drink is only allowable in particular circumstances and it is recognised this could be open to abuse.

The Care Home recognises the importance of providing guidance as to when this practice is lawful, and to ensure that if it is used for a resident, it has been properly considered, thorough consultations have been made and that the practice is transparent and open to public scrutiny and audit.
