People should be safe from harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (outcome 11)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (medical and non-medical equipment, furnishings or fittings).
  • Benefit from equipment that is comfortable and meets their needs.

How this check was done

Our judgement

There is suitable and well maintained equipment but not all staff use all equipment safely.

User experience

There were no specific comments made by people who use the service with regards to this outcome.

Other evidence

Equipment seen as we toured the building looked in good condition and had been well maintained and stored safely. The information sent prior to the visit clearly stated that equipment was regularly serviced and policies and procedures were in place. Most equipment was used correctly and safely, the exception being a member of staff pulling a wheelchair backwards without using footrests. This was neither a comfortable or safe way to transport someone.
