Medication Record Templates for Adult Acute Hospitals

We are pleased to share the Medication Record Templates for Adult Acute Care with you.

The templates are intended to be used as an aid in the development or revision of local Medication Records and should not be regarded as a definitive national standard that must be implemented. Ensuring that each hospital’s Medication Record is designed, tested, revised and used appropriately and safely is the responsibility of that hospital.

The templates build on the extensive work carried out between 2010 and 2013, led by Mr Tim Delaney under the guidance of the National Medication Safety Advisory Group chaired by Professor Joe Harbison. This involved national consultation, design, testing in Portiuncula, Naas, Beaumont and Cork University hospitals. We have now updated and redesigned the Record as a series of templates.
