People should be cared for by staff who are properly qualified and able to do their job (outcome 12)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

How this check was done

Our judgement

Staff recruitment is robust and helps protect people living in the home.

User experience

Staff spoken to felt that their recruitment process had been thorough, with a good and helpful induction.

Other evidence

At the last review we had concerns about some areas of staff recruitment in relation to references and getting a complete work history of each applicant. On this review we looked at the staff files of three staff. All records showed a fully completed application form, a full work history, CRB check and two references from the most recent employers.

Staff had received Induction training, training for manual handling, health & safety, infection control, dementia awareness, and safeguarding. They had also had regular reviews of their work progress and any support needs.
