People should be safe from harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (outcome 11)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (medical and non-medical equipment, furnishings or fittings).
  • Benefit from equipment that is comfortable and meets their needs.

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 01/04/2011, 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

The registered provider has ensured that weighing equipment for people that use the service is now available and working effectively. This ensures that people’s weight is being monitored and reduces the risk of potential harm.

User experience

On this occasion we did not speak to people about this outcome area.

Other evidence

The lift was working effectively on the day of the inspection. There is also a stair lift which ensures people’s free access around the home if the lift breaks down.

The weighing scales that were broken at the time of our previous visit have been replaced with a new set of weighing scales that had been purchased. This means that any change in people’s weight is now being monitored and recorded.
