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 14 August 2013, observed how people were being cared for, checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff and reviewed information given to us by the provider.

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 looked at the arrangements for ensuring that people were protected from the risk of abuse.

Each of the four people we spoke with during our visit to the service in August 2013 told us that they were treated well. People told us that they had confidence in the dentists and dental nurses and that they felt safe and well cared for.

We saw that the service had appropriate policies and procedures for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults from the risk of abuse. Staff we spoke with were aware of their responsibilities to keep people safe. Staff were aware of how and to whom to report any concerns about the health, safety and welfare of people who were using the service. This showed that there were arrangements in place for recognising and reporting concerns and for protecting children and vulnerable adults from the risk of abuse.
