New HSIB investigation looks at medication omission in mental health hospitals

The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) have started a new national investigation looking into medication omission in mental health hospitals.

It was launched after they were notified by the parent of a young adult service user with a learning disability that he was regularly not offered prescribed medication whilst on a long-stay mental health ward.

The investigation will focus on information transfer within the prescribing and administration of medication in mental health hospitals to reduce omissions.
