MEDI-BOOK features Medicine Manager which is a completely functional way to store and administer medication for pupils during the school day. The user can add pupil owned medication to the system as well as school owned medication.
This is done by adding the details of the medication as well as the dosage that needs to be issued. Doing so then allows the user to schedule when the medication should be given. For example if a pupil is on a course of antibiotics, this can be scheduled in the system so staff members know when the course ends.
The system also keeps track of the quantity of medication. So when a staff member issues medication to a pupil it will adjust the remaining quantity according to the dosage that was issued, meaning that the user will know when medication needs to be replenished.
Medication Consent Management
Having parental consent to keep and store a pupil’s medication on site is a must in school. With MEDI-BOOK, users are able to get just that without any extra work or hassle involved. There are two ways to complete the medication consent form using MEDI-BOOK and it is completely up to the school which they use, most will use a combination of both.
The first way is by using the MEDI-BOOK app, there is a medication consent form on the app and can be filled in by a parent/guardian when they bring their child’s medication into school.
The second way is school staff can use the desktop version of MEDI-BOOK to send an email to the child’s primary contact with the consent form in which the primary contact can then fill in and send back.
Both methods result in the same outcome with the school having consent to keep the medication on site. This becomes part of the medication adding process. Once the form has been filled in, it can be authorised by a member of SLT and then added to MEDI-BOOK so that it can be scheduled and issued when needed.
