People should be cared for in safe and accessible surroundings that support their health and welfare (outcome 10)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are in safe, accessible surroundings that promote their wellbeing.

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 2 November 2013, 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 and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People who use the service, staff and visitors were protected against the risks of unsafe or unsuitable premises.

Reasons for our judgement

We saw that all bedrooms were single occupancy which promoted people's privacy and dignity. We looked at two bedrooms and saw that people had brought items into their bedrooms including, pictures and televisions. People we spoke with told us that they liked their bedrooms. One person who lived there showed us their bedroom. They said, “Look, my bedroom is very nice. I have got everything I need. We can stay in our bedroom to listen to music or read when we want to”. This meant that the bedrooms provided met people’s personal preferences and privacy needs.

We observed that there was one lounge and one dining room. Both rooms were of a good size. This gave people a choice of where they wanted to spend their time. We saw that the premises were well maintained, comfortable and clean. We saw that the gardens were adequately maintained.

We randomly checked certificates to ensure that fire fighting equipment was safe and in good working order. The certificates that we saw confirmed that the equipment was safe.
