|EVIDENCE |Unit, Element, PCs |Knowledge | |On arrival to my workplace, I knocked the front door for entry into the building. The front door remains locked | | | |at all times to avoid any intruders or unknown persons from entering the building. This is in line with the | | | |National Care Standards for Care homes for Children and Young People which cite ‘privacy’ as an important | | | |principle in order to maintain “your right to have your privacy and property respected; and be free from | | | |unnecessary intrusion.” After being allowed entry by a fellow staff member into the building, it was evident | | | |that the unit was unsettled as there was a lot of shouting going on. In order that I knew the events that had | | | |led up to this and did not become involved in a situation that I was unsure of, thereby putting myself and the | | | |young person at risk, I received a changeover from another member of staff who had been on the previous shift. | | | |This is essential before every shift as it ensures the consistency of the service provided to the young people | | | |and team work is a necessity when working in the care sector.

These at-risk behaviours | | | |are cited in John’s Behaviour Support Plan. These are used in order that staff are aware of the types of events | | | |or behaviours that john may struggle with and so that they can react effectively. Repeated attempts to ensure | | | |John’s safety have been made including the prevention of other young people into his room and providing him with| | | |his own personal room key. These attempts were made in order to make John feel safe and were in line...
