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 16 June 2014, checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care and talked with carers and / or family members. We reviewed information given to us by the provider.

Our judgement

Appropriate checks were undertaken before staff began work.

Reasons for our judgement

We looked at recruitment documents for five care staff that had been employed since our last inspection of the service in October 2013.

We found that all the necessary checks had been made including professional references, identity checks and enhanced criminal record checks.
