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

We found that there was compliance with this outcome. The support and care provided for people living at the home is from qualified competent staff.

User experience

We spoke to people who live at the home, and they spoke highly of the staff and were positive about the way they are treated.. One person spoken to said, "There is not one member of staff who I don’t get on with". Other people told us the staff always try and help, and "Terrific people who work here".

Other evidence

Staff we spoke to confirmed they had completed all the relevant employment checks before starting work.

We watched during the visit good interaction between staff and residents especially in the EMI part of the home, we saw they were kind and patient towards the residents. People who live at the home looked relaxed and content.

Information we received from social services, told us they were happy with the recruitment procedures and attitudes of staff when they last undertook a monitoring visit.
