As a carer I have a duty of care to ensure that the service users I care for are safe

By February 11, 2019 General Studies

As a carer I have a duty of care to ensure that the service users I care for are safe, protected from abuse by other service users, staff, colleagues, friends and family. I therefore work within the safeguarding policies and procedures and it is important that I receive adequate training so that I can recognise and understand signs of abuse.
It is my duty to report and record all relevant information when an accident or incident occurs in the workplace it is my responsibility to report and record any improper behaviour or suspicion that I think may fund to abuse and neglect. Duty of care and safeguarding work together because it’s my duty of care to make sure the cline are receiving high quality of care and safety for a vulnerable adult whilst at the same time respecting their needs and choices.
The Whistleblowing policy in my workplace makes it clear to me that it is my responsibility to report inappropriate behaviour that compromises service user safety whilst ensuring confidentiality and protection from abuse for service users.’
