Nurse Delegation Services

Our nurse delegation services are beneficial if your loved ones need to take prescriptions that require a family member or medical professional to be present. Our caregivers are trained and supervised by our registered nurse to provide medication assistance and medication administration services. Our registered nurse may provide medication set-up services. Our registered nurse will conduct and document a supervisory visit to our client’s home at least once every 30 days when medication assistance, medication administration or medication set-up services are provided.

  • Medication Assistance – Our caregivers can assist our clients with the self-administration of non-injectable medications, provided that our client is able to self-direct his/her caregiver to administer his/her medications. This medication service is called “medication assistance”. Prescription medications must be administered from the original container. Oversight of our caregivers, who provide medication assistance, is by their supervisor. Our caregivers are trained and qualified by our registered nurse to provide medication assistance services.
  • Medication Administration – Our caregivers can administer medications to our client or directly supervise our client to take his/ her medications from the original container and/or from a closed secondary medication container that is designed and manufactured for this purpose, provided that our client is unable to self-direct his/her caregiver to administer his/ her medications. Our RN can set-up our client’s medications from the original containers into closed secondary containers designed and manufactured for this purpose for up to fourteen days in advance. Our caregivers are trained and supervised by our registered nurse to provide medication administration and set-up services.
  • Medication Set-up – Our RN can set-up our client’s medications from the original containers into closed secondary containers designed and manufactured for this purpose for up to fourteen days in advance. This medication service is named medication management (set-up).
