People should be protected from abuse and staff should respect their human rights (outcome 7)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are protected from abuse, or the risk of abuse, and their human rights are respected and upheld.

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 18 July 2013 and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

Reasons for our judgement

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening. We saw the provider had a safeguarding children policy in place and the contact details of the local authority safeguarding team were available. We saw records that healthcare professionals had attended safeguarding vulnerable children training. The provider demonstrated an awareness of safeguarding vulnerable adults processes and The Mental Capacity Act but had not attended formal training.

The provider had a system in place to record incidents of concern and told us staff could and would approach him at any time. We saw there was a whistle blowing policy available. We also saw there were regular practice/ staff meetings which provided an opportunity for staff to raise issues.
