What is Suppository Administration?

A Suppository is a medication that is inserted into a body orifice to be broken down and absorbed by the body. Suppository administration is the act of administering the suppository into the specific body orifice.

Can carers administer suppositories?

It isn't classed as a routine activity for care workers, and it is normally a delegated nursing task but if the carer has the correct training, skills and knowledge, they can complete the task.
