People should get safe and coordinated care when they move between different services (outcome 6)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Receive safe and coordinated care, treatment and support where more than one provider is involved, or they are moved between services.

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 30 October 2013, observed how people were being cared for and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care. We talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

Arrangements were in place to make sure that people’s health and social welfare was protected at all times.

Reasons for our judgement

We found records showed that arrangements were in place that made sure people’s health and social welfare was protected at all times. We saw evidence that staff had worked with various agencies and made sure that people accessed other services in cases of emergency, or when people’s needs had changed. This had included doctors, consultants and specialists.

Staff we spoke with confirmed that people were: “Able to access other services if they needed to”. Staff confirmed that they worked well with other agencies. Staff told us: “We don’t hesitate to get medical support if people need it”. On the day of the inspection we saw that a visiting social worker had carried out a health and welfare review for a person who lived at the home. People told us that staff: “Would get the doctor if I needed it or asked them to”. This meant that people’s health and welfare was protected because staff worked in cooperation with others to achieve this.
