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 carried out a visit on 17 January 2013, talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People who used 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

The provider had a policy and procedure in place in relation to safeguarding of vulnerable adults. A whistle blowing policy was also in place. This meant staff had access to information which supported them to identify and report suspected abuse.

We spoke with a GP at the service and found they were knowledgeable about possible signs of abuse, and the different types of abuse that could occur.

All four GPs working at this service had received safeguarding training in the 12 months prior to our inspection.
