Hutt Valley DHB and Nelson Marlborough DHB, with support from the Health Quality & Safety Commission have produced a new medication chart for use by district nursing in the community.
Modeled on the national inpatient medication chart, the community medication chart provides:
Associate clinical nurse manager in community health at Hutt Valley DHB, Maree Southward, says they used to use a separate medication prescription sheet and administration signing sheet which was not best practice.
‘This new chart is much clearer, and we now meet certification requirements. Legibility has improved - and prescriptions are so much clearer now.
'With the many administration signing spaces for long-term treatment GPs only need to provide a new prescription every three months now.'
The chart is printed to order. Please place orders directly with the printer.
