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 reviewed all the information we hold about this provider and carried out a visit on 04/01/2012.

Our judgement

People who use this service are protected from abuse, or the risk of abuse. Staff are trained to take action and prevent abuse from happening in the service.

User experience

We spoke with two members of staff during our visit. All of the staff told us they had taken part in training that showed them what abuse was and how to recognise the signs. They all told us they would feel confident reporting any allegation of abuse and knew how to do this.

We also spoke with the manager who was able to demonstrate clearly the action she would take if she suspected abuse had taken place or an allegation had been made.

The home has policies in place that offer additional guidance to staff about dealing with safeguarding and abuse.

Some staff had also received training in the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the deprivation of liberty safeguards. Further training for staff is in the process of being arranged by the provider. This means that people who do not have the capacity to consent to areas of their treatment will be supported by staff who understand legislation and their role and responsibility in doing so.

Other evidence

We have no other evidence to consider for this outcome.
