Before people are given any examination, care, treatment or support, they should be asked if they agree to it (outcome 2)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Where they are able, give valid consent to the examination, care, treatment and support they receive.
  • Understand and know how to change any decisions about examination, care, treatment and support that has been previously agreed.
  • Can be confident that their human rights are respected and taken into account.

How this check was done

Our judgement

People are supported to make informed choices and decisions.

User experience

Many of the people that use the service were not able to express their views due to their cognitive and/or physical needs.

We spoke to a relative who explained that they had been consulted about the use of a specific piece of safety equipment for a person. The relative felt that staff had fully explained the potential risks of not having the equipment, but had also pointed out any known potential risks associated with its’ use.

Other evidence

We spoke to staff regarding their understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Staff had received training and were able to competently explain their understanding of issues such as Deprivation of Liberty, by relating their knowledge to the needs of residents at the care home.
