TMA Shadowing Experience

I have completed the on shadowing experience at Country Manor on two separate days. The first shadowing took place on November 21st, 2016 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and the second shift was completed on November 22nd, 2016 from 6:30am to 10:am. I shadowed Janet Groshong and Stacie Derry. They both were friendly and I was able to observe medication distribution. I was able to see multiple types of medication administration as well as to meet new people.
At Country Manor Campus there are adult geriatric patients who have various levels of care. The campus houses nursing home residents, assisted living clients, memory care, and rehab patients. I completed my TMA shadowing in the assisted living portion of the facility. Many of the clients I met had limited physical abilities and some stage of dementia. The residents were from ages 71 to 101.
The six rights are utilized during the med passing. First we must be sure that we have the right patient. Then we must make sure to have the right date and time so that they are staying on schedule. Then it is important to have the right type and dosage of medication to ensure the resident is getting proper care. Next, the patient will have to have the medication given by the correct route prescribed by their doctor. Some patients have a NPO restriction set, so it is important to note the route a medication is being delivered. After the medication has been successfully given, the TMA must document it correctly.
