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 looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 14 February 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with carers and / or family members 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

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.

We saw that the agency had the relevant policies and procedures about the protection of vulnerable adults. We were shown the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Adults policy and procedures for Dorset and the providers' safeguarding policy and procedures.

The provider responded appropriately to any allegation of abuse.

We spoke to the registered manager and although there had not been any safeguarding notifications they were able to tell us in detail about types of abuse and appropriate actions to take including informing safeguarding and the care quality commission.

We spoke to two staff members they were able to identify types of abuse and if they had any concerns they would report them to their line manager without delay. One care worker told us that if they had any concerns they would 'talk to the registered manager'.
