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 10 April 2013, 11 April 2013 and 16 April 2013, talked with people who use the service and talked with staff. We were accompanied by a pharmacist.

Our judgement

Appropriate checks were undertaken before staff began work.

Reasons for our judgement

The care staff we spoke with confirmed the agency had carried out all the relevant checks prior to commencing employment and the recruitment process was thorough.

Appropriate checks were undertaken before staff began work. We reviewed four staff files we saw evidence of job applications, interview notes, enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check, two written references, and proof of identify. The care manager told us they always obtained two references and carried out a full Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) disclosure on new care staff before they started work.
