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

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 were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

We looked at three personnel files.

The personnel files all contained application forms for positions, notes from staff member’s interviews were in most, as well as references. All staff had enhanced criminal records bureau (CRB) checks. Identification had been provided and checked prior to the CRB applications being submitted. CRB checks were carried out prior to people starting to work for the provider.

This shows that the provider has effective recruitment and selection procedures in place and carries out relevant checks when they employ staff.
