Staff should be properly trained and supervised, and have the chance to develop and improve their skills (outcome 14)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by competent staff.

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 benefit from staff that have received appropriate training for their roles and responsibilities, although a more in-depth approach to dementia training would be very beneficial.

User experience

We did not speak to people living at the care home about this outcome area. We observed some good practices on the unit for people with dementia, including positive attempts to engage people in conversation and activities. However, we found that some staff were not confident in their knowledge of how to use reminiscence materials.

Other evidence

The service produced an up to date training matrix which evidenced that staff received induction, mandatory and other training. We spoke to the manager about the need for nursing and care staff to be offered a recognised dementia training course, to supplement the existing dementia training.
