This update will help you understand your legal and ethical responsibilities as you care for the residents and will help you know what actions to take to insure that you meet the mandates specified by the state of Oklahoma as you complete your daily tasks. Professional, ethical and legal issues will affect the way you perform your job as a Medication Administration Technician. As a MAT, you will confront both ethical and legal issues with professionalism. Ethics concerns your judgment and values. The legal responsibilities of the MAT have been defined broadly by the Oklahoma Statutes and sometimes in more detail by the State Department of Health and/or other agencies. Knowing your legal and ethical responsibilities will prove beneficial to you, your employer, and the residents of your facility.
In this update, we will also review the purpose and importance of documentation and practice correct documentation. The main purpose of documenting is to communicate information about each resident, in writing. This information is used by the MAT, and others, to provide appropriate care to each resident. If you make a mistake in documenting, then the resident may not receive the proper care by the next care provider. Documenting results in a permanent, legal record of the quality of care provided to each resident. Accurate documentation may also prevent you from having legal problems.
