Wales - Residential Services- Supported Living
Policy reviewed and now includes reference to the Care Inspectorate Wales Lines of Enquiry. No other changes to wording or content made as policy is still relevant and up to date.
Policy reviewed and updated. Now includes reference to COVID-19 and the importance of risk assessing the need for contractors to visit the service. The Visiting Contractors Declaration form has also been updated to reflect COVID-19.
This policy will support the service with fire safety, ensuring it has the right checks and procedure in place in the event of a fire. The policy has been reviewed with some changes. The terminology ‘stay put policy’ has been removed and replaced with ‘defend in place’. There is more emphasis on the fact that fire drills should be conducted at night as well as during the day (when fewer staff are available). Some additional references have also been included.
