People should get safe and appropriate care that meets their needs and supports their rights (outcome 4)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Experience effective, safe and appropriate care, treatment and support that meets their needs and protects their rights.

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 25 April 2014, 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 staff and reviewed information given to us by the provider.

Our judgement

People’s needs were assessed and care and treatment was planned and delivered in line with their individual care plan.

Reasons for our judgement

People’s needs were assessed and care and treatment was planned and delivered in line with their individual care plan.

People who used the service told us that staff involved them in their care plan. We saw that the service carried out a pre-admission assessment with people before they moved into the home. This was to make sure that they could meet people’s needs. Care plans included people’s views and reflected their wishes. For example one person liked to be involved in household chores and the service made sure that this was facilitated. This was confirmed by us on the day of the inspection.

We saw that the staff interacted positively with people who used the service and that the atmosphere in the home was calm and relaxed. People told us that the staff were “Nice”

Care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that was intended to ensure people’s safety and welfare. We found that the service carried out risk assessments for each person to ensure that they were safe. These risk assessments included but were not limited to mobility, nutrition, self- administration of medicines and the risk of falls. For example one person who was living with dementia liked to walk round the service independently. Staff were aware of this persons needs and were able to describe to us what actions they took to make sure the person was safe.

We saw that people’s care plans contained health records, risk assessments, health care consultations and appointment records, weight monitoring records, nutrition screening and assessment tools, food intake records and hydration records. We found these were regularly reviewed to ensure that staff would be aware of the most up to date information to meet people’s needs.

We saw that the home had contingency plans to continue care in emergencies, for example, in the case of fire, medical emergencies, hospital admission, electricity power cuts, heating, and adverse weather condition and had evacuation plans.
