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 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 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.

Reasons for our judgement

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.

People who used the service told they had “No complaints” and felt “Safe” at the home.

We saw that the home had the local safeguarding authority’s procedure in place so that they could be familiar with local procedures and act accordingly should there be an incident or concern raised with them.

We spoke to staff who were able to describe the action they would take if there was a safeguarding concern raised. The records we saw confirmed that all staff had received recent training or refresher training in this area so they had the most up to date information to protect people.

Staff were also aware of the services whistle blowing policies and procedures and their responsibility for reporting abuse. The manager confirmed that training in the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) had occurred so that staff were aware of people’s rights where they may not have capacity to make a decision themselves.
