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 looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 5 February 2013, observed how people were being cared for and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care. We talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

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

The provider responded appropriately to any allegation of abuse.

We found that there were arrangements in place to deal with foreseeable emergencies and that episodes of potential or actual risk to people receiving care and treatment were recorded, discussed and preventative measures were put in place to ensure they were safe.

Staff we spoke with showed us that they knew how to ensure that the people were safe and how to access the information they needed to ensure they received the nursing care, treatment and support they required. They demonstrated that they knew how to protect each person’s human rights through choice and that they knew how to recognise, prevent and report abuse. The records held confirmed that staff members had completed training in the safeguarding of vulnerable adults.
