People should be cared for by staff who are properly qualified and able to do their job (outcome 12)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

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 12 November 2012, talked with people who use the service and talked with carers and / or family members. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

Appropriate checks were undertaken before staff began work. There were effective recruitment and selection processes in place. We saw that as part of the recruitment process, two satisfactory references and a satisfactory criminal records bureau (CRB) disclosure was required before staff commenced employment.

We saw evidence in staff files that these checks had been completed before staff were employed and started work. We saw that there was a recruitment and selection process which ensured that the staff appointed had the skills and experience to do the job they had applied for.
