People should be protected from abuse and staff should respect their human rights (outcome 7)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are protected from abuse, or the risk of abuse, and their human rights are respected and upheld.

How this check was done

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

User experience

We spoke to people using the service but their feedback did not relate to this outcome.

Other evidence

We saw Safeguarding procedures were displayed for staff to follow along with information about whistle blowing. The manager had also obtained a copy of the Pan London Safeguarding procedures for reference purposes.

A member of staff spoken was able to tell us the procedure they would follow in the event of them having to make an alert.

We looked at the training records kept for two members of staff and these showed that they had attended training on Safeguarding Adults from Abuse. Induction training is to Skills for Care specification and includes a module around Safeguarding.

Staff files also showed that staff had been receiving regular supervision with their line manager.
