Duty of Care and Benchmarked Standards

The QCS team have long held the belief that the aim behind registration and inspection is to ensure that people using your services receive the best quality care possible. Care Quality Commission requirements place a high level duty of care upon providers to ensure that services are delivered against benchmarked, recognised standards. Accordingly, their enforcement powers are extensive and punitive, and include fines, restricting services, suspending or cancelling registration and prosecution.

So maintaining standards is essential and QCS can be there to support you, every step of the way.

Latest Question

Can I employ a 16 year old to work in my care setting who wants to gain experience in the Care Sector?

Hi Sheila,

I employ 12 people who work always on a 2:1 ratio with my disabled son. I have been approached by a staff member who has a 16 year old daughter who wants to gain experience in care work. As she would always be supervised and after training would she be able to assist with bathing and pad changes? This all happens within my adapted home, not a care home setting.
