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

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 15 January 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with carers and / or family members and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People who used 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.

Reasons for our judgement

People who used 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.

We spoke with two members of staff and they were able to describe the procedures in place to report any safeguarding incidents they may witness or become aware of. They told us that they felt confident that any incidents would be dealt with effectively by the management.

Staff we spoke with were knowledgeable about the procedures and how to recognise abuse.

People who used the service told us that they had monthly evaluation meetings where any concerns could be addressed. They told us that; “Staff are very good and I feel very safe here.” and “Staff treat me with respect.”

Staff had been given the opportunity to undertake training in safeguarding vulnerable adults and other specialist training for example, challenging behaviour, Mental Capacity Act 2005 and autism.

We looked at records that showed the provider responded appropriately to behaviours that may challenge the service. Our review of care records in the home found that the action plans to keep people safe had been developed and implemented where required.

Risk assessments and care plans had been developed to support safe care interventions and incidents relating to people's behaviour were monitored and assessed.
