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

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 23 November 2012, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

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.

Reasons for our judgement

We spoke with two people who use the service. Both people told us they felt safe at the service and never seen anything of concern.

The dental practice had a copy of Derbyshire and Derby City Safeguarding Adults policy as well as Safeguarding Children Procedures. The staff had received safeguarding training in September 2012. In addition to these policies, procedures and training being in place the dental practice had their own internal safeguarding and whistle blowing policies. The internal policies had contact numbers for people in different organisations, such as social services, who could be contacted should a safeguarding issue be identified.

We spoke with two members of staff. Both members of staff provided us with examples of types of abuse and possible signs of abuse. They were also aware of the reporting procedure for safeguarding issues and had seen a copy of the practice's safeguarding policy and knew where it was kept if they needed any specific telephone numbers. This shows that 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.
