If your home health client refuses to take their medication, you should

Home health clients have the same rights as patients in any other setting: nursing home, hospital, or clinic. They may refuse treatment without fear of punishment. You should try to find out why they don't want their medications. Perhaps the reason can be resolved or there is another issue that they can tell you about. Report their refusal to your supervisor. Do not try to trick or threaten them. Always remove any medication that is not taken.
