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 looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 7 October 2013, talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

Reasons for our judgement

We spoke with members of staff who had received safeguarding of adult and children training and were able to explain their responsibilities in this regard.

Staff demonstrated a good knowledge of how to safeguard people. They could describe signs and indicators of abuse and were able to explain reporting procedures.

We saw that all staff in the practice had received safeguarding training and this was further evidenced by copies of the course certificates staff had obtained.

We also saw that staff had received training in the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and were aware of its relevancy in dentistry
