Staff should be properly trained and supervised, and have the chance to develop and improve their skills (outcome 14)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by competent staff.

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 4 March 2014, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with carers and / or family members, talked with staff, reviewed information given to us by the provider and reviewed information sent to us by commissioners of services. We reviewed information sent to us by other regulators or the Department of Health, reviewed information sent to us by other authorities, talked with commissioners of services and talked with other regulators or the Department of Health. We talked with other authorities.

Our judgement

People were cared for by staff who were supported to deliver care and treatment safely and to an appropriate standard.

Reasons for our judgement

During our inspection on 22 October 2013, we found that there was no system to supervise or appraise staff. During this inspection we found that the new manager had implemented a system of supervision for all staff. We saw evidence that the manager had carried out supervision for all of the care staff which covered their daily work and future training plans. We saw that the nursing staff were due to receive their supervision in the near future. This meant that staff were being supported to carry out their roles.
