People should get safe and coordinated care when they move between different services (outcome 6)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Receive safe and coordinated care, treatment and support where more than one provider is involved, or they are moved between services.

How this check was done

Our judgement

The service works with other agencies to ensure that individuals benefit from a well coordinated delivery of care.

On the basis of the evidence provided we found the service to be compliant with this outcome.

User experience

People who use this service made no specific comments about this outcome.

Other evidence

The provider's registration application told us that they are compliant with this outcome.

During our visit staff told us about the admission process for people moving in to the home. Staff meet with prospective new people and liaise with other professionals to ensure they were aware of all the person's care needs and preferences. One person who had recently moved in to the home told us that they had initially met with staff from the home, and had had a number of opportunities to visit the home prior to moving in. There was a record of an initial pre-admission assessment having been completed. Staff told us they were supported to complete training so that they could suitably meet the needs of people receiving care. In the care plans viewed there was evidence of information being received from health and social care representatives to inform the assessment process and to indicate that the provider co-operates with healthcare professionals such as GP’s and community nurses.

We spoke to a health care professional who visited the home and they told us the service worked with them.
