Unison has launched a guide for nursery nurses on administering medicines to children in their care. The union represents more than 30,000 nursery nurses, the majority in the public sector.

As well as ensuring the safety of the children, the guidelines are crucial for the protection of staff who may be adminstering strong medicines to young children.

The guide recommends a written policy between employers and the union and that training should be given before nursery nurses are asked to administer medicines.

It also contains guidelines on record-keeping and the storage of medicines. And it says there must be no requirement for staff to underatake procedures they are reluctant to carry out.
