We understand that care home owners operate in very challenging circumstances. Faced with strict standards, delivery of care obligations as well as financial pressures, limited budgets and growing demands Health & safety issues affecting residents and employees can be overlooked.
Our experienced consultants can carry out a care home audit which would consider such issues as:-
Care home fire safety
Fire emergency procedures, including PEEPs;
Scalds and hot surfaces;
Health & safety risk assessments;
Statutory examinations of lifting equipment;
Safety in kitchens and laundries;
We use documents such as the Health & Safety Executive’s “Health and safety in care homes” as audit standard. Our audits do not cover issues such as levels of care, care plans, medication and staffing levels that are not covered by health & safety guidance.
Broadgate Safety Consultants have extensive experience in supporting care homes that offer residential care, nursing care and dementia care through audits, training and advice so that legal duties and requirements of bodies such as the CQC can be met.
