People should get safe and appropriate care that meets their needs and supports their rights (outcome 4)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Experience effective, safe and appropriate care, treatment and support that meets their needs and protects their rights.

How this check was done

We carried out a visit on 6 February 2013, observed how people were being cared for, talked with carers and / or family members and talked with staff.

Our judgement

One parent told us that the service was really good.

Reasons for our judgement

Children's needs were assessed and care treatment was planned and delivered in line with their individual support plan.

We looked at four support plans for children and saw that all personal care needs were recorded. Contact details of next of kin, general practitioner, physiotherapist, social worker and emergency contact were all recorded.

Although volunteers were trained to offer personal care where needed, much of their support involved helping children with disabilities to access the local community. It also involved helping them in their hobbies or in daily routines such as bed time routines. We saw this was recorded in the support plans. One parent told us that the service was really good.

Risk assessments were in place in relation to choking, health and safety, medication and a volunteer spoken with told us that they had received training in emergency first aid for children. This ensured children's safety.

There was a pictorial chart in place for children with communication difficulties. This ensured people's individual needs were identified and met.
