If you are a resident concerned about your wellbeing, or a relative of a loved one being looked after in a health or social care setting, the Care Protect concept can give you reassurance that standards of care quality and safety will be monitored by an independent team of experts.
By filming that utilises camera images and audio and the latest secure cloud technology, and combining this with monitoring by our team who have in depth front line expert understanding of, and experience, in health & social care – it means that by this greater transparency, the wellbeing of adults and children is improved and they are better safeguarded and protected. In all cases, this only takes place with the prior consent of residents and relatives/next of kin.
Years of relevant health & social care experience together with all necessary DBS checks and Security Industry Authority (SIA) licensing, means that the Care Protect independent monitors are very well qualified. Collectively they offer a high level of sector knowledge and expertise essential to assist and advise those with responsibility for safeguarding and quality and clinical governance. Their daily review and ongoing monitoring of film images and audio footage ensures care practices are consistently maintained at a high level. The monitors expertise is applicable for residential care homes, public and private hospitals and clinics, children’s nurseries and numerous other care settings where vulnerable people reside.
The independence of the Care Protect monitors is crucial as if they don’t have confirmation that an issue or concern they have identified is being addressed, they will escalate their concerns to appropriate national and local governing bodies – so ensuring the matter is not suppressed nor is hidden, and therefore meaning this independent policing system helps to give reassurance and raise standards of care quality and safety by greater transparency.
Obviously one concern which can be created when cameras or CCTV is mentioned is that of privacy. The company and its advisers in developing this concept have taken account of the various legislation surrounding data protection and filming.
You may initially want to speak to your health or social care provider organisation or to any independent regulatory bodies to ascertain whether they already have or will introduce the Care Protect system. If they don’t have the independent monitoring and safeguarding which Care Protect supply, you can always contact us to see how we can help you to privately introduce this service for yourself or a loved one.
Whichever avenue is taken, and subject to appropriate legal consent, you along with our expert independent monitors will be able to view film and audio of the care being offered and so give reassurance and peace of mind that you or a loved one is being safeguarded.
