The HSIB was notified by the parent of a young adult service user with a learning disability that he was regularly not offered prescribed medication whilst on a long-stay mental health ward.

HSIB has launched an investigation regarding medicine omission in mental health hospitals.

The investigation will focus on information transfer within the prescribing and administration of medication in mental health hospitals to reduce omissions.
