Care homes fail on vetting20th July 2006
According to a report by the Commission for Social Care Inspection nearly half of all care homes in England fail to properly vet job applicants.
The Inspection found only 59% of homes for older people met national standards in 204 - 2005. The 150 poorest performers did not have adequate checks or recruitment policies. While nearly half of domiciliary care agencies (47%) are failing to meet the standard, performance is slightly better in older people’s care homes (41%) and younger adults’ care homes (39%), although two fifths of homes are still failing to meet the national minimum standard.
