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 3 December 2013, 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

We looked at seven personnel files which were comprehensive and detailed. We found robust checks had been undertaken prior to the commencement of employment. Each member of staff had completed an application form, which detailed their previous work experience, skills and relevant qualifications for the work to be performed.

We found criminal records bureau (CRB) disclosures had been obtained for all staff and at least two references had been obtained prior to commencing employment. A health questionnaire had also been completed. We saw copies of driving licences and passports as identification checks.
