If anybody dies in their care the service should tell CQC how and when they died so that it can take action if needed (outcome 18)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Can be confident that deaths of people who use services are reported to the Care Quality Commission so that, where needed, action can be taken.

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 10 December 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff, reviewed information given to us by the provider and talked with commissioners of services.

Our judgement

The provider notified the Care Quality Commission about the death of a person who used the service.

Reasons for our judgement

The provider is required to notify without delay the death of a person who used the service. We reviewed the process that was in place to notify the Care Quality Commission of the death of a person who used the service and found there was an appropriate process in place. We reviewed the records and found that there had been seven deaths at the service in the last year and these had been reported to the Care Quality Commission without delay.

People who used the service could be confident that deaths of people who used the service were reported, so that where needed the Care Quality Commission could take necessary action.

We asked the manager if there had been any accidents or incidents that were required to be reported to the Care Quality Commission as there were none recorded but we were told that there had been none.
