Scottish care regulator the Care Inspectorate has launched a self-evaluation guide for care homes.
This supports the new quality framework for care home inspections and aims to help care homes to identify what’s working well and what could work better with reference to the new care home quality indicators.
The Care Inspectorate says that care homes can decide for themselves how often and what to self-evaluate. This may include the performance of a team, a particular process, or the experiences evidenced from comments and complaints received.
Chapters in the book cover:
- What is self-evaluation
- How to use self-evaluation
- Asking yourself ‘how are we doing?’
- Asking yourself ‘how do we know?’
- Asking yourself the question ‘what are we going to do next?’
- Carrying out your self-evaluation
- Involving people who experience care, and their carers
- Checklists for involving people and removing barriers to involving people.
