The vetting and barring system in England and Scotland is designed to ensure that people who are unsuitable to work with vulnerable adults, or with children, are prevented from doing so. Criminal records checks are undertaken on everyone who works or volunteers and anyone found to have a record of offences will be barred from working with vulnerable groups. Orchid View case The review was launched last October after an inquest found that neglect at the West Sussex home had contributed to the deaths of five residents and that a further 14 had received ‘sub- optimal’ care. The report makes more than 30 recommendations. Professional Learning:

Private care homes being required to provide they can sustain a skilled workforce. Care providers should be required to demonstrate that they have robust plans for recruiting and sustaining a skilled workforce to the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Agreement of thresholds and a system for alerting relatives about safeguarding concerns at homes so that they can make “informed choices” about where to place their loved ones. CQC should name homes that lack a registered manager on its website. CQC to do more to get the views of relatives in its inspections, including providing them with the opportunity for private discussions about any safeguarding concerns they may have. Mrs Gloria Foster case Mrs Foster was left alone for nine days without her essential privately funded care and support service when the provider company ceased trading. She died eleven days after being discovered by a visiting district nurse and her admission to hospital. Police investigations concluded the action or lack of action of any person did not meet the criminal threshold of wilful neglect or ill treatment. The actions involved, or rather inaction, were not intentional or deliberate. Nor can the employing council be shown, at senior manager level, to have criminally breached their duty of care. The SCR found that Mrs Foster would have benefited from better multi-agency care coordination and review from August 2009. Besides offering a potential improvement to the quality of her life this may have avoided her falling victim to events. The provider failure protocol subsequently put in place by Surrey addresses the necessity to treat service closure as a significant occurrence demanding of focussed leadership. It includes, for example, the use of timed handover logs and scheduled debriefings that would have picked up the omissions that left Mrs Foster without home care for nine days. Professional learning: The need to have in place a Provider Failure Protocol which recognises service closure as a significant occurrence. The need for clear policy and practice guidance regarding people returning home to improve multi-agency coordination of care.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
