The service should have quality checking systems to manage risks and assure the health, welfare and safety of people who receive care (outcome 16)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Benefit from safe quality care, treatment and support, due to effective decision making and the management of risks to their health, welfare and safety.

How this check was done

Our judgement

St Judes was meeting this outcome. The home had effective quality assurance systems in place to gain feedback from people and to monitor the service being provided.

User experience

"We have meetings about the home and what we want to do."

Other evidence

We spoke to staff who said; "We have staff meetings every couple of months. The owner is open to suggestions and has an open door policy" and "We can raise ideas and suggestions."

The home carried out a range of audits and checks which included weekly mattress audits, health and safety checks and fire alarm tests. They also undertook fortnightly duvet audits and monthly medication stock checks.

The home also carried out a practical observation of staff hand washing in December 2011.

Weekly resident meetings were held and minutes of these minutes were seen.

A survey was sent out to people living at the home on the 1 February 2012 to seek their views and experiences. Surveys had been sent to people annually and the results of these had been collated.
