HSC32 - KS 2

2. Explain how you would provide active support and promote individuals’ rights, choices and well-being whilst promoting healthy and safe working practices and minimising risks from incidents and emergencies?

To give support and to minimise risks to service users I always give them the choice to be cared for in the manner they choose as long as it does not pose a threat to others and I take my guidance from their daily care plan and latest risk assessment. I ensure that the environment is safe for them to use and the equipment they use is safe and meets with the national standards.

Risk assessments and their management must be carried out by a qualified person and are usually completed in the hospital, the GP or a nurse prior to a residents admission into the home. Within a few days of the residents arrival a further risk assessment will be carried out by the RGN or manager in the home and then again at regular intervals.
