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 5 December 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with carers and / or family members and talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for,or supported by,suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

Appropriate checks were undertaken before staff began work. We looked at two staff records and asked the manager about the recruitment procedures. Job adverts were placed locally or online and successful candidates were interviewed by senior staff. If successful a candidate would only be offered employment if all the necessary checks were completed and satisfactory such as a minimum of two written references, including the last employee, a criminals records check, proof of identification and eligibility to work in the country, proof of address, medical clearance and application form. On receipt of satisfactory information new employees would be subject to a probationary period of three months which would either be successful, extended or lead to termination of employment. These checks meant the service was only recruiting suitable staff to work with vulnerable people.
