Not only is the setting free of discrimination but equality and fair treatment to everyone is promoted. It is very important within health and social care because the service users will often be vulnerable meaning they are more likely to be a victim of discrimination and affect them a lot worse in comparison to those who are not vulnerable. Not only is it their vulnerability that puts them at more risk of harm and abuse but also because they are putting their lives and care in the hands of others and are trusting them to provide a good standard of service to help them. This is about making your care setting completely equal and giving everyone fair treatment. It includes making sure discrimination doesn’t happen but also promoting anti-discrimination.
When looking at coping with change it is not possible to ignore some of the events which change our development, life events which cause significant change are called transitions (Jeffery, J in Aldridge, S & Rigby, S 2004). If these transitions are not prepared for, they can cause emotional difficulties or even physical illness. Counselling skills can be very effective at this stage as the helper needs to work out how to make the adjustment to these changes more satisfactory for the client, to lower the emotional distress. The counsellor has to first establish what kind of transition the client may be going through; Scholssberg (1989) in Aldridge, S & Rigby, S (2004) identified 4 different kinds of transitions: Anticipated, Unanticipated, Non-event transitions and chronic hassle transitions. Unanticipated transitions are unplanned and can be projected as a crisis; this was personally experienced when my parents got divorced.
We must be patient and be able to tolerate varying amounts of floundering, confusion and false starts. We also must allow the individual to take their time to discover their own solutions while being honest with them without being judgemental. If for instance, an individual is showing lack of progress, we need to continue to motivate them and empower them to help themselves. The individual will be experiencing low self-esteem in these circumstances and we need to remind them of past successes. If progress is being made, we need to continue to encourage them and congratulate their progress.
Outcome 4.2 Explain the importance of an accessible complaints procedure for reducing the likelihood of abuse It is important to have an easy accessible complaints procedure so people know where to find it. They may not want people to know they are filing a complaint so may not want to ask where the forms are. It should be a straight forward form and not too complicated as people may not bother to fill it out otherwise. More issues can be dealt with once a form has been filled out and it can reduce the likelihood of abuse. Unit
Unit 4222-250 1.1 Personal hygiene is important for many reasons firstly maintaining good personal hygiene will prevent your skin possibly breaking down and the complications that go with that such as it effects your health. Good hygiene could mean people feel more confident and are more likely to want to be sociable. Personal hygiene also helps people have a better self image. Good hygiene also prevents the spread of germs and illnesses to others. 1.2 The effects of poor personal hygiene can make people feel that they cannot socialise and this may make them try to withdraw from others, it may also make the person in question feel that they are not worthy and have a bad self image, people may even feel that they are ugly.
We must monitor the clients behaviour and ensure we check their mobility hasnt deteriorated . If this happens they may need futher assessments so that equipment becomes available. If the manager does not feel we are meeting the clients needs he/she will arrange for the client to be moved to a more suitable home. The manager has to ensure all staff are trained to prevent accidents and also ensure their are suffient staffing levels. 2.2 Know how to address conflicts or dilemmas that may arise between an
It is pivotal to develop a good rapport with the staff and build a trusting relationship otherwise the supervision is not effective. During my supervision, I ask the staff routinely if they have any concerns regarding safeguarding, health and safety concerns. Any issues around safeguarding and health and safety are treated with high importance and I act on them immediately. I believe this protects and prevents any major accidents or incidents to happen. For instance, Beddoe believes that the purpose of the professional supervision from an employer perspective is to ensure public protection.
The characteristics are transparency, fairness, active leadership, and psychological safety. Transparency implies its definition; primarily errors are reported and not hidden, especially about patient care. The transparency is not only related to reporting the patient errors but also reporting the reason and addressing cause behind errors, the corrective actions, and accepting accountability for said errors. The interdisciplinary team members will be encouraged that the ‘blame game’ is not the environment they are working in, but focusing at a ‘broken system’ and what can be done to safe-guard the patient and staff from the errors that were present in the system. Fairness is a way to level the playing field when system based errors effect the actions of a team member and again refers back to the ‘blame-game’ regarding system based errors.
They can also be used as a basis for measuring quality of care, so provided the quality is good enough, both can be protected against unfair claims. Enforcing non-discriminatory practices and employer and employee responsibilities: both the employer and employee know their responsibilities as the guidelines make it clear what is expected of both of them. Helping avoid litigation and deregistration: carers want to avoid being sued or their institutions ahving their licence removed because for example, they are not providing the required quality of care. The guidelines can be used as a basis for measuring the quality of care prived. Safeguarding: by having clear guidelines which support non-discriminatory practice, both carers and service users are safeguarded against possible injury or abuse.
It is all about getting a point across and ensuring that the person receiving the information has a clear understanding of what the problem is and how to fix it. Good medical care is based on effective communication from the health care providers to the patients and his or her families. If a providers communication is ineffective it can cause improper medical services such as the wrong treatment or diagnosis. It is always good for the medical team to be on the same accord because it ensures that the patients will not receive different information which causes confusion, it is all about understanding the concept of
