Managing risks: inadequate

  • Organisations we regulate

S2. How are risks to people assessed, and their safety monitored and managed so they are supported to stay safe?

Characteristics of services we would rate as inadequate in this area

Substantial or frequent staff shortages or poor management of agency or locum staff increases risks to people who use services.

Staff do not assess, monitor or manage risks to people who use the services.

Opportunities to prevent or minimise harm are missed.

Changes are made to services without due regard to the impact on people’s safety.
