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

The provider was meeting this standard. 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.

User experience

We did not receive any direct comments in respect to the degree in which people felt they were being protected from abuse.

Other evidence

We saw polices and procedures at the home regarding the safeguarding of vulnerable adults. This included local procedures which staff followed for reporting an alleged incident to the correct authorities. This was designed to ensure that any possible problems that arose were dealt with openly and people were protected from possible harm.

Staff training records showed that the staff members received training in recognising abuse and how to report an incident of abuse or a suspicion of abuse. This was confirmed by the staff members on duty during our inspection.
