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

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 21 March 2014 and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

When we visited the home in September 2013 we looked at four staff personnel records and saw they did not contain evidence which showed effective recruitment processes had been followed. We asked the provider to make improvements.

We went back on this inspection to check whether improvements had been made.

We looked at the personnel records of four staff and found they all contained documents regarding their recruitment. We saw that application forms, reference requests and references were held within each of the files. This showed appropriate recruitment and selection processes had been followed.

We saw that each record held an up to date criminal record bureau (CRB) disclosure number for the individual concerned. This meant staff were being properly checked to make sure they were suitable and safe to work with adults at risk.

We also saw documentation which showed staff had completed an induction on commencement of employment. This demonstrated that the provider ensured new employees had the appropriate knowledge and skills to perform their job roles.
