Hygea can help you take your medications and provide companionship during your visit. They can do this in the comfort of your own home.

Safe and controlled medications

Navigating medication can be daunting, from navigating a new treatment regimen to keeping track of existing prescriptions.

Navigating medication can be daunting, from navigating a new treatment regimen to keeping track of existing prescriptions. The intricacies of proper dosages and administration can add another layer of complexity. This can understandably cause worry for both seniors and their loved ones. But fear not, for we are dedicated to simplifying the process for all.

Our team collaborates seamlessly with GPs and pharmacists to ensure accurate medication is initially prescribed. And with our comprehensive medication service, we offer a range of options to provide ease and peace of mind.

Precise medication and proper dosage for optimal treatment.

Our adept team possesses the necessary expertise to provide unparalleled support in the administration of medication. Whether it's establishing a new regimen, managing multiple medications, or simply needing some assistance to ensure proper intake, we are equipped to make a significant difference.

We can administer medication from its original packaging or specialised multi-dose systems provided by the pharmacy, such as NOMAD or MDS packs. Our skilled carers are also proficient in helping with various forms of medication, including creams, inhalers, nebulisers, and nose, eye, and ear drops.

As we prioritise safety, we emphasise establishing clear lines of responsibility regarding medication management between us, our esteemed client, and their loved ones.”

emar charts

Digital Medication records

Our carers will have electronic access to your care plan to provide prompt and accurate healthcare. In addition, the system provides reminders of your or your families’ needs and updates about medications or other treatments that might be required.

Help with medication means you can relax, knowing that our Support Worker will give out the medications required to ensure that everything is done on time and correctly. This way, there are no worries about any overlooked prescriptions because they have it all recorded in detail.

The help from our Support Workers ensures no medications are missed or taken twice by mistake, and they will record every administration on our eMAR system for each medication.

Community Care Assistants can also apply prescribed creams/ointments and eye drops with corresponding body map to ensure accuracy.

How medication is recorded

An eMAR chart stands for electronic Medication Administration Record and is a working document used to record the administration of medicines.

All clients will have their own individual eMAR chart, detailing all prescribed medications, whether prescribed by the GP or Specialist at the hospital, with all information recorded clearly.

Accurate records reduce the risk of medication errors.

We use technology to record medication intake in the digital carers app. However, as an extra safety feature, our carers cannot complete care records and check out until the carer has completed all tasks; this includes medication administration.

What information does an eMAR Chart contain?

  • The individual’s full name ( as it appears on the medication)
  • Which medicines are prescribed for the individual
  • When they must be given
  • What the dose is
  • Any special information, such as giving medicines with food

Maintaining records

A MAR ( Medication Administration Record) or eMAR (electronic Medication Administration Record) is a document that records what medication has been administered or refused. These documents are to be kept for a certain length of time and could be used as evidence, therefore, the accuracy of these is imperative.

In addition to the above, these documents could help identify emerging patterns and prompt timely medical interventions, including GP medication reviews etc.
