Because medication administration is a very risky procedure, when we choose to administer medications, we have to have a very clear policy to minimize the risk to both the child and our program:
- who we will administer medication to?
- what medication we will administer?
- where will the medication be stored?
- when does the child receive the medication?
- how do we document all of this?
