People should be cared for by staff who are properly qualified and able to do their job (outcome 12)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

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 2 January 2014, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

The service had a recruitment and induction policy which had been updated and reviewed by the registered manger. The only staff who worked at the home was the registered manager and her husband. We saw records which showed that they had undergone checks to prove they were of good character. This meant that people who used the service could be confident about the character of staff that provided their care and support.

We saw training certificates which showed that the registered manager had attended a variety of training courses and events relevant to her role, these included dementia care and health and safety risk management. This meant that people who used the service could be content that their care and support was provided by people with the right skills and experience.

The registered manager said, “We have our recruitment and induction policies, but we don’t intend to take on any further staff. We will continue to support our one resident as long as we can meet their needs, but we intend to retire at that point which is why we don’t take any further residents”.
