Storing medicines in fridges in care homes – CQC Guidance

Guidance was updated in November 2020 by the Care Quality Commission relating to the storing of medicines in fridges within Care Homes.

With so much COVID-19 guidance being published at the time you would be forgiven for not picking up on it, but if you do have a medicine fridge but do not have this in place it will impact on your inspection.

If you were to search online for “Freezer/Fridge Thermometer” you can find one from £10 upwards.
