People should be safe from harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (outcome 11)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (medical and non-medical equipment, furnishings or fittings).
  • Benefit from equipment that is comfortable and meets their needs.

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 4 February 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 and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were protected from unsafe or unsuitable equipment.

Reasons for our judgement

At our last inspection on 2 May 2013, we told the provider that they were not meeting this essential standard. We said, “People were not protected from unsafe or unsuitable equipment.” During our last inspection we found that portable electrical appliances at the home were not subject of current Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) and servicing had lapsed.

In response to our concerns, the provider wrote to us and told us what actions they had taken to improve.

During this inspection, we found that all electrical equipment in the home, which required a PAT test and certificate, had been tested by an external electrical contractor, and had a current certificate. This meant that people were protected from unsafe or unsuitable equipment.
