People should not be given medicines without their knowledge if they have the mental capacity to make decisions about their treatment and care. This guide from the National Institute for Healthcare Excellence (NICE) and Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) is aimed at care home managers or anyone providing medicines support in care homes.
This quick guide includes information on:
- capacity and consent,
- what the process is if there is a decision to give medicines covertly, and
- what to do if you need to make a decision urgently.
