There should be enough members of staff to keep people safe and meet their health and welfare needs (outcome 13)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by sufficient numbers of appropriate staff.

How this check was done

Our judgement

People were cared for by staff who had been recruited safely and sufficient numbers of staff were provided to meet their needs.

User experience

People were not consulted about this outcome area

Other evidence

We looked at staff files and saw that these contained CRB checks and references taken from previous employers where possible. Dates recorded in the files indicated that all necessary checks had been completed before the staff member had commenced working at the home.

We saw that rotas were in place to ensure there were enough staff on duty to meet people’s needs at all times of the day and night.
