Mersey Care believes strongly in setting the highest of healthcare standards across everything we do. This includes zero tolerance of harm from medication, which we aim to achieve through the following steps:

  • 100 percent drug error reporting to include classification of harm
  • Zero moderate or severe harm from drug errors
  • 100 percent of medication doses administered and administered on time in EPMA areas
  • Reduce errors relating to medicines given by injections to zero, with a focus on dental services and agency staff in 20/21
  • Develop a plan to rollout refresher training to other Trust staff over the next few years
  • Implement safety register for high dose anti-psychotic polypharmacy
  • 100 percent antimicrobial prescribing reviewed within 72 hours
  • 100 percent of medication administration by restrictive method with the risk of psychological harm will be subject to a multidisciplinary review within 48 hours.
