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

Our judgement

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

The provider was meeting this standard.

User experience

We spoke with people who live in the home but their feedback did not relate to this standard.

However, we observed interactions between staff and people living in the home. These interactions showed that staff had the knowledge and experience to support people in their choices about their daily living whilst also helping people to understand how their choices might impact on others.

Other evidence

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

We looked at records that confirmed that staff had completed training in the safeguarding of vulnerable adults which included Mental Capacity Act 2005 training and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards training.

Staff we spoke with told us that they had attended safeguarding training and knew how to recognise and report abuse.

Staff also confirmed they would feel comfortable raising any concerns with the manager and the owners of the home.
