Description
 
This audit report concerning the oversight of psychotropic medications prescribed to Californiańˇ╗s foster children concludes that the State and counties have failed to adequately oversee the prescribing of these medications. Specifically, some counties have yet to adopt the Stateńˇ╗s prescribing guidelines, a valuable tool to ensure that foster children do not receive inappropriate or unnecessary psychotropic medications. The report found that many foster children were authorized psychotropic medications in quantities and dosages that exceeded the state guidelines. Also, the report found no evidence that the counties had followed up with the health care providers to ensure the safety and necessity of the medications. Includes recommendations. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
