Took over 4 hrs! Overall very good feedback and Im happy with my grading I have one action which Im disappointed with. My understanding on permission forms for medication was to fill out the NCMA one (if youre a member) and that was fine. But no the parents have to write a letter given full details of the med and then they will out the NCMA form. But at least I know now Thanks for everyones help and advice over the last week!Youre all fab
For over-the-counter medication it says "you must get written permission beforehand from parents. And, you must follow the same recording procedures as those for prescribed medication. You must only give medication when asked to do so by a parent and if there is an accepted health reason to do so."
So it looks to me as though parents have to write a letter each time they want a different medicine given.
Guys can you just confirm that the "Permission to administer a short course of medication or treatment daily" Section 3 in the NCMA accident/incident/medication folder isn't enough? Do you have to have seperate written permssion.
I would like that confirmed too - it's all I use. I was inspected end March and nothing was said about it. If they change the requirements, then they should notify each and every one of us - not assume we all have the internet and have nothing to do but lurk the Ofsted website every day [we're far too busy on Mumnet .
i dont think it matters what you have ask three insoectors the same question you will get three different answers. there is no "FIXED" way of grading you just have to hope they got out of right side of bed and finished there bowl of crunchie nuts that day!! i have a friend who has just got outstandins and to be fair she isnt "THAT GOOD" ive mine next week so we shall see. we have the same inspector so shoudl be interesting. congrats though.
Thanks everyone. Just to confirm the 'permission to administer a short course of medication or treatment daily' was what I filled in and she said that wasnt enough. You also have to have written permission too. She showed me in the statutory framework book on page 26 nm
