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 13 August 2013, observed how people were being cared for and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care. We talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

Patients were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken all reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

Reasons for our judgement

Patients were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken all reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

Our inspection on 7 February 2013 found that staff had not received safeguarding vulnerable adults’ training. The provider wrote to us on 15 March 2013 and told us that staff would attend safeguarding vulnerable adults’ training by the end of April 2013.

We spoke with one patient. They told us they always felt safe using the service.

We spoke with two staff members about this standard. They could identify types of abuse and told us they would report concerns to their manager and follow the safeguarding policy.

We looked at the service’s safeguarding vulnerable adults’ procedure. The policy contained appropriate information.

We saw that staff had completed safeguarding vulnerable adults training.
