Assessing needs and delivering evidence-based treatment: inadequate
E1. Are people's needs assessed and care and treatment delivered in line with current legislation, standards and evidence-based guidance to achieve effective outcomes?
Characteristics of services we would rate as inadequate in this area
People's care and treatment does not reflect current evidence-based guidance, standards, practice or technology. Care or treatment is based on discriminatory decisions rather than a full assessment of a person's needs, including those related to nutrition, hydration and pain relief.
Staff fail to comply with the Mental Health Act Code of Practice or other legislation.
