Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by competent staff.

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 9 January 2014, sent a questionnaire to people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for by staff who were supported to deliver care and treatment safely and to an appropriate standard.

Reasons for our judgement

Staff received appropriate professional development. Staff had been trained in a variety of topics such as safeguarding children and adults, decontamination, first aid and medical emergencies. Records demonstrated that dentists and nursing staff had up to date registrations with the General Dental Council which meant they were fit to practice. The service was also supporting one student dental nurse with thier training.

Practice updates and information regarding best practice was shared with staff at team meetings. Records showed items discussed included the fire drill, dealing with complaints and reading policies.
