4 1. Aim The purpose of this policy is to highlight the responsibilities and roles of all Wirral Community NHS Trust employees to help protect vulnerable adults at risk of abuse and mistreatment. It is designed to provide a framework to support all staff in contact with patients to recognise report and prevent the abuse of vulnerable adults. 2. Target Group This policy applies to all staff directly employed including bank staff, all students on placement 3. Outcome All staff will implement the policy. 4. Relevant legislation or statutory requirements This policy has been quality assured against all relevant Department of Health legislation and against all Equity and Diversity Standards in Wirral Community NHS Trust. This policy upholds the rights of individuals as regards to age, race, gender, disability, sexual orientation and religion. The principles are based on jointly agreed policies across the local health community, local authority and the police. The policy has been through the Impact Assessment Process. 5. Local definition Every adult has a right to respect, dignity, privacy and a life free from abuse. A vulnerable adult is defined in No Secrets (DH 2000) as: a person aged 18 years or over who is in receipt of or may be in need of community care services by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness and who is or may be unable to take care of him or herself, or unable to protect him or herself against significant harm or exploitation. 6. Basic Principles Abuse is unacceptable, and should not be condoned in any circumstance Staff need to consider their own personal safety and must not expose themselves to unnecessary risk. Line managers should be kept informed. Consideration should be given to clients psychological as well as physical health Advice and support should be offered, if appropriate and safe to do so. Victims should be given time and space to make choices and be supported, whatever decision they make. Consideration should be given to people who may have communication difficulties e.g. learning disabilities, cultural barriers, and speech, language or hearing problems. Any response must ensure that the safety of the victim and any children is the first priority 4/18

5 Do not blame the victim for the abuse. Responsibility for the abuse lies with the perpetrators Always believe a victim who discloses abuse Treat them with respect and dignity. Procedure to follow if staff suspects abuse If a member of staff suspects that a person is being abused, they have a duty of care to report it. Discussion should take place with the person allegedly being abused if it is safe to do so. Informed consent should be obtained, but if this is not possible and others are at risk, it may be necessary to override this requirement. It should be reported to:- Safeguarding Adults Lead for Wirral Community NHS Trust The staff member s Line Manager The abuser s Line Manager (following discussion with Safeguarding Adults Lead) Central Advice and Duty Team (CADT) Contact numbers can be found on page 10 of this policy 5/18

6 IF YOU SUSPECT ABUSE, REPORT IT Staff must to be aware that it is NOT their responsibility to investigate cases of abuse or mistreatment of vulnerable adults. Wirral Community NHS Trust staff do not organise strategy meetings or Adult Case Conferences were DASS are Lead professionals but staff should be aware they will be expected to share information and work closely with the Department of Adult social Services (DASS) to meet the best interests of the patient. If there is no input to DASS, Wirral Community NHS Trust staff will be expected to arrange Professionals meetings to allow staff members working with clients to voice opinions on patient care and outcome. Reporting abuse will enable Wirral Community NHS Trust to implement safeguards and improvements to services to help protect people from abuse. Confidentiality The Information Sharing: Pocket Guide (HM Government 2008) advises health care staff on issues of confidentiality. The NHS does have a duty to protect privacy and not disclose inappropriately. Health information is shared with other health professionals and outside agencies on a need to know basis to provide safe and effective health care. However, there are occasions when information needs to be shared to protect the best interests of the patient and those most vulnerable in society. It is important to recognise that the person being abused may not wish to take action. If this is the case it is still important to report it so that the incident can be recorded. Reporting abuse will provide information that can be used as part of a future investigation. Without this information, abuse may continue and previous evidence will not exist. There is legislation which supports this, for example The Crime and Disorder Act 1998, which aims to protect public interest:- Information will be shared on a need to know basis when it is in the best interest of the service user Informed consent should be obtained, but if this is not possible and others are at risk, it may be necessary to override this requirement Decisions about who needs to know and what needs to be known, should be taken case by case in discussion with line managers If there is a disclosure which the alerter feels may be in the public interest to release information to other agencies a conversation must take place with the Caldicott Guardian for Wirral Community NHS Trust. 6/18

7 Domestic Abuse In cases of domestic abuse where the definition of a Vulnerable Adult (as defined in this policy) is not clear, then further discussion with Wirral Community NHS Trust Safeguarding Lead is imperative. Contact numbers can be found on page 10 of this policy. 7. Record Keeping Health records play an important role in responding to domestic abuse, not just in a health setting. All record keeping needs to follow Wirral Community NHS Trust s Policy and Procedures guidance (Policy for Managing the Quality of Health Records GP6). All departments should have clear and robust arrangements for the recording and storage of information according to Wirral Community NHS Trust Policies and procedures. The British Medical Association for medical practitioners and Crown Prosecution Service have stressed the need for evidence that is beyond reasonable doubt e.g. reliable, available and cogent, particularly in the event of the perpetrator of violence being charged with assault. This is important as records you keep can be used in:- Criminal proceedings Obtaining an injunction or court order Housing provision Civil procedures in family courts to assess the risks associated with parent/child contact. 8. Specific Duties/Responsibilities Professionals within the organisation who are available for support post disclosure are: Trust Board The Trust Board have overall responsibility for ensuring that the Trust delivers high quality services that are efficient and effective. The Trust Board is made up of the Chairman, Chief Executive, Executive Directors, Medical Director and Non-Executive Directors. The Board of Directors oversee the running of the Trust, make the decisions that shape future direction, monitor performance and ensure accountability 7/18

8 Chief Executive has ultimate accountability for ensuring the provision of high quality, safe and effective services within Wirral Community NHS Trust. Director of Quality & Governance and the Executive Lead for Safeguarding are responsible for ensuring this policy is disseminated. Safeguarding Service will ensure all policies are up to date and will provide support to members of the organisation. Service Leads/Heads of Service are responsible for ensuring all relevant staff are compliant with this policy and to fulfil the standards expected by the Trust Employees must comply with the standards in this policy and support clinical audits being undertaken on behalf of the Trust and attend Essential Learning Training as per Trust Training Matrix 9.

The equality screening process and any wider impact assessment should be forwarded with the policy when approved to the Compliance Officer. As part of its development, this policy and its impact on equality have been reviewed by the Head of Safeguarding, as described above. The purpose of the assessment is to minimise and if possible remove any disproportionate impact on employees on the grounds of race, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation or religious belief.
