Medication Management for Seniors: Ensuring Safety and Effectiveness with Radiant Health Services
We understand the importance of medication management for individuals with chronic conditions. Our medication management services are designed to ensure that seniors receive the right medications in the right doses at the right time. With a team of trained and certified caregivers, we work closely with clients and their primary care physicians to develop a comprehensive medication regimen that is safe and effective.
The Benefits of Medication Management with Radiant Health Services: Comprehensive Solution for Seniors
Medication errors are a leading cause of harm to patients worldwide, and older adults are particularly at risk. According to a study by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, medication errors occurred in nearly 20% of older adults discharged from the hospital. At Radiant Health Services, we offer a comprehensive medication management program that includes the following:
- Review and evaluation of medication regimen
- Medication Reminder
- Medication Administration (as per prescription and physician’s instruction)
- Monitoring of medication effects and side effects
- Communication with healthcare providers regarding the medication regimen
- Regular follow-up evaluations to assess progress and adjust our approach as needed
Ensuring Safety and Quality: Our Comprehensive Caregiver Training and Supervision
Radiant Health Services is dedicated to ensuring the safety and quality of our medication management program. That is why our certified caregivers are trained to administer medications correctly, communicate with our RN Supervisor, and document medication administration correctly. Additionally, our caregivers are subject to a thorough screening process, including:
- Criminal Fingerprint Background Checks
- Initial and Ongoing Comprehensive Training
- OIG Fraud and Medicaid Exclusion Check
- Employment Reference and Educational Verification
- Monitoring and Supervision by Registered Nurse
- Monthly Check-In and conference call with families.
Understanding the Difference between Medication Reminders and Radiant Health Services Medication Management Program
Medication reminders are an excellent tool for keeping track of medications, but they do not take into account administering the medication correctly. Radiant Health Services’ medication management program takes medication adherence to the next level by providing certified caregivers with the training and expertise to ensure the correct dosage and time for taking medications. For seniors who have difficulty organizing and taking their medications, our RN-supervised and certified caregivers can provide comprehensive support and make sure that medications are taken as prescribed.
