A Trained Medication Aide (TMA) distributes patient medications in nursing homes, schools, correctional facilities, or other non-hospital, assisted living facilities for the physically or mentally disabled. Medication aides are directly supervised by doctors or other licensed caretakers. They typically assist patients in properly taking oral prescriptions in correct dosages. TMAs may also monitor patients to ensure they do not have any adverse reactions after taking their medications.
