direct care interview questions shared by candidates
What would you do if a client refuses medication?
never force or trick a client into doing anything.
You can only offer a explanation of why they should take their medication but thats all you can do. You cannot force adults to do what they do not want to do (whether they have a disability or not) . Refusing to take their medication is their personal choice and they have the right to deny it just like any other adult. A person refusing to take their medication will have to learn the consequences of not taking it. *Bottom line, you have no control over adults they have the right to choose what they want/dont want to do.
If a client refuses medication you are not able to force the client to take it. How ever you can ask twice and if refuse again I believe it should be taken up with a higher person, some one that can help assist you with the client.
