I've never used ncma medication forms but I know that you definitely need to know when it's been given by parents - so you're not overdosing...

Then you need to sign to say time you've given it and get the parents to confirm.

If it was 2 doses during a day, I would use the same form... but not for 2 days, then I would use different ones because the parent would need to enter another time of when they last gave the medication.

Hope that helps! :D

I'm a bit confused by that

I have one sheet for each child - I enter the date, name of medicine/dosage, time/amount last dose given and by whom etc etc - parent signs to confirm it all

I use this form until all the space has been used up whether it's one/two days, two weeks or two months so don't understand why that's not OK.

Am I missing something?

I don't know but I'll bump this up for you!

I wonder if it's worth giving ncma a ring and asking their advice since it's their form??

Hopefully someone will come along later who knows. :D

I use the NCMA one - one page for each child until its full. But each time I a child receives medicine I get the parent to sign and then give them a photocopy - its just cheaper than keep buying new forms!!
