  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 14/01/2011, checked the provider's records, observed how people were being cared for, looked at records of people who use services, talked to staff and talked to people who use services.

Our judgement

People that use the service were protected by staff being satisfactorily recruited.

User experience

We did not speak to people living at the care home about this outcome area.

Other evidence

We checked a random sample of staff files, which evidenced that appropriate recruitment practices took place. However, we advised the manager of the need to ensure that all references are consistently verified by a telephone call to the referee, even when written on official stationary or with a company stamp.
