All settings will have policies and procedures in place for reporting issues associated with
medication. Broadly speaking this involves keeping clear written records of the administration of
medication and then noting down clearly time and date of for example in the case of a reaction to
taking medication. Any issues should then be reported to higher managers, parents or carers and if
necessary emergency services that may have to be called. It is always important that medical
professionals dealing with these kind of issues have as much up to date information available.
Naturally if the situation was more minor it is still good practice to ensure parents and careers are
informed with details in case of subsequent problems occurring.
