Before people are given any examination, care, treatment or support, they should be asked if they agree to it (outcome 2)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Where they are able, give valid consent to the examination, care, treatment and support they receive.
  • Understand and know how to change any decisions about examination, care, treatment and support that has been previously agreed.
  • Can be confident that their human rights are respected and taken into account.

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 7 May 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

Before people received any care or treatment they were asked for their consent and the provider acted in accordance with their wishes.

Reasons for our judgement

Before people received any care or treatment they were asked for their consent and the provider acted in accordance with their wishes.

We spoke with both people using the service. They both told us they had read and understood their care plan. One person told us "I have a care plan, staff helped me to understand it". Another person told us "I signed my care plan". We spoke with care workers who told us they always involved people using the service when reviewing care plans. One care worker told us "people write their own care plans, we support them".

We looked at the care plans for both people using the service. The care plans were person centred and people had written in them. Both people had signed their care plans to show that they had consented to their care, treatment and support plans.

Both of the people using the service had capacity to make decisions. The manager told us that due to their mild learning disabilities, they used limitations which were put in place with the full agreement of people using the service. These limitations were fully recorded and people using the service had signed them to indicate they understood and agreed to them.
