Before people are given any examination, care, treatment or support, they should be asked if they agree to it (outcome 2)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Where they are able, give valid consent to the examination, care, treatment and support they receive.
  • Understand and know how to change any decisions about examination, care, treatment and support that has been previously agreed.
  • Can be confident that their human rights are respected and taken into account.

How this check was done

Our judgement

We found that there was compliance with this outcome.

People who live at the home are involved in decisions about care, support and treatment they receive.

User experience

People told us of there experience when they moved into the home and one said, "I was asked all the way through the moving in process my thoughts and opinions of what was needed".

Other evidence

It was difficult to speak to people in the EMI part of the home; however we spoke to two relatives visiting who were happy with the involvement of themselves and the person moving in when deciding what care and support was required and the wishes of the resident.

One staff member spoken to said, "We know the importance of what the individual wishes are so that we can understand their needs and try and make them as comfortable as possible".

Care plans looked at confirmed involvement of families and people who live at the home in care received.
