SHC 34 1.1 + 1.2 Signed…………………………..Date……….……… Understand how duty of care contributes to safe practice 1.1 Explain what it meant to have a duty of care in own work role As a registered child minder I have a duty of care to make sure the child or young person is safe and taken care of. I am responsible for the wellbeing of the individual so care and attention need to be shown to minimalize the possibility of them coming to any harm. Their wellbeing is the main priority in everything I do in my setting. I always act in their best interest and act with confidence and assurance in what you do, do not take on any tasks or projects that I feel cannot be done safely. Ask for help and support if needed.
Both in my cleaning company and my marketing business I am expected to not only be prepared properly but to keep accurate records and confidential information of my clients. My marketing clients except me to keep their business information a secret and not give away any hints of their marketing plans to other competition. My cleaning clients expect me to keep their home security information secure and trust me to report to them any concerns regarding the maintenance of their homes. This ethics game simulation was a great tool that assisted me in learning the principles from this class. The ethics simulation helped me better understand the differences between the lenses.
CONFIDENTIALITY Confidentiality is very important as we are working with vulnerable people. It is very important that we maintain confidentiality at all times. If we are told something in confidence by service user we must explain that if necessary we may need to report to our manager but will still be confidential unless further action is agreed or needed. Any care notes or service user’s care plan are also confidential so we must ensure this is kept safe. Anything that you have been told in confidence must not be noted in care

UNIT 4222-209 Handle information in health and social care settings Outcome 1 All recording storing and sharing of information is to be done properly as it is vital to the vunerable individuals that i and others care for, their information should be well documented and always locked away. This is a vital legislation and is included in the policys and procedures. This information protects the individual and is not for just anyone to look at ,then the only people who can see this are the people that are careing for the person ,this protects me as a part of the team caring for the individual ,the information is also covered by the government data protection act 1998. Outcome 2 To access guidance and infortmation on handling the information i would have to speak with the people who are involved in the individuals care.This is stored in the care plans and this is in the nurses office which is locked if she is not in there .I can also access other information that is in the policys and procedures file which i can locate in the staff room that only the carers can use . If there is any concerns over any information that is stored or shared and recorded i would immediatly inform the senior/nurse and the manager ,to get the problem sorted out,I would also record and document it in the care plan and check that the individuals file was updated.
They also have to do everything in their power to keep the service users safe from harm. Your duty of care underpins everything that you do, it is what underlies the codes of practice and it should be built into your practice on a day to day level, exercising your duty of care is also a legal requirement and what would be tested in court in the event of a case of negligence or malpractice. Aii) How the duty of care affects the work of a social care worker. Service users have a right to expect that when a professional is providing support they will be kept safe and not to be neglected or exposed to any unnecessary risk. The expression is that we ‘owe’ a duty of care to the service users we work with.
* 1.2 Lack of communication in the workplace can result in relationships being strained and unfulfilled, it is very important that there is good communication between all members of staff as this ensures things run well and mistakes are not made and things are not overlooked. It also enables us to work effectively with each other. * 2.1/2.2/2.3/2.4 Reading care plans is always a good start when establishing the individual’s communication needs and preferences, if the service user is new to your home then either ask the previous carers or the service users friends and family as they are likely to know and can pass this information to you, this also enables you to put this information in your own care plans for the individual. If the service user is not new to the home but you are, ask other staff how they communicate with them. When promoting effective communication you should ensure that you have all the information on how the individual prefers to communicate, and to be very aware of the environment, ensure there are no distractions, for you or the service user.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are responsible for carrying out investigations on care companies and to make sure that hospitals, care homes and care companies are meeting the national standard, they make sure every employee has up to date training, and has had a CRB carried
