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 8 November 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with staff.

We spoke to one person who used the service.

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

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse because the provider had suitable arrangements in place to safeguard people. The doctor confirmed that they knew what to do if a safeguarding concern was raised and received annual training on safeguarding children and adults. We were told that administrative staff received safeguarding training every three years and we were given examples of abuse and the signs of abuse.

Safeguarding policies and procedures were available. The children and adult safeguarding policies stated who to report allegations to and the procedure to be followed.

At the time of our inspection there had never been any safeguarding concerns raised at this practice because there had not been any to report.
