What is a procedure?

A procedure describes the recommended steps or written instructions of a particular event and describes how the policy will be acted upon. The aim is to help prevent bad incidents from happening to persons and residents. For example, a social media policy will provide step by step instructions on how social media can be used. These are in place to save time and effort trying to agree on a course of action. Using compliant documents helps employees in the workplace follow rules.

What's new and what are the new policy areas for 2021?

As you know CQC always like to make sure care homes and providers are keeping up to required standards. They have identified some areas where care homes and health providers may need help including:

Maintenance: Does your care home or health provider have the policies in place in regards to maintenance? i.e is broken equipment being reported and fixed?

Food and Allergies: Does your staff know what to do in an emergency if someone is fed something that they are allergic to? Are foods labeled with allergy information? Does your team approach caution when making meals.

Training: Do you have a policy which ensures your staff members only take on certain tasks if they are trained and competent?

GDPR: Is your data up to date and GDPR compliant?

Want to see an example policy?
