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

People were protected from abuse because staff were recruited safely. There was a safeguarding reporting procedure in place for staff to follow and staff understood that procedure. Staff had also received training about safeguarding vulnerable adults.

User experience

People told us they knew who to raise concerns with and were confident that the manager would take any concerns seriously.

Other evidence

There have been no safeguarding referrals made to the Local Authority safeguarding team and there are no ongoing safeguarding investigations.

We saw that all staff had undergone a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check before they started working at the home as part of the recruitment process.

We saw that staff had received training about how to protect people from harm and how to report any safeguarding issue they might witness or become aware of. When we spoke with staff they were able to describe to us the procedure they should follow to report any safeguarding issues.

Staff told us they were confident the manager would take the right action and would deal with any concerns appropriately.
