Services should be provided by people who have the necessary qualifications, skills and experience for the job (outcome 23)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Have their needs met because the management is supervised by an appropriate person.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 5 September 2013, observed how people were being cared for and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care. We talked with people who use the service, talked with carers and / or family members and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People who use the service have their needs met by a manager who is supervised by an appropriate person.

Reasons for our judgement

At our last inspection on 07 May 2013 we were concerned that the provider had failed to provide the name of a person who is employed either as director, manager, or company secretary, to be “the nominated individual”.

Although the provider had submitted a formal notification regarding this matter, a named individual had not been made known to us. We discussed this with the provider during the inspection visit and we are now in receipt of the appropriate details.
