People's personal records, including medical records, should be accurate and kept safe and confidential (outcome 21)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Their personal records including medical records are accurate, fit for purpose, held securely and remain confidential.
  • Other records required to be kept to protect their safety and well being are maintained and held securely where required.

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 22 January 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with carers and / or family members and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were protected from the risks of unsafe or inappropriate care and treatment because accurate and appropriate records were maintained.

Reasons for our judgement

People’s personal records were accurate and fit for purpose.

We looked at a selection of records during our visit. The records had been fully completed and were very detailed. We saw care records for service users were stored securely. We saw the service had procedures in place for monitoring and reviewing people’s personal records to make sure these were kept up-to date. In this way people’s records were accurate and fit for purpose.
