It is not only the work place that needs to priorities the safety, welfare and interests of the people using this service but also the care errors, care workers must also have a duty of care towards other staff members to ensure that all working conditions are safe and suitable to deliver the best service they can. If the person in this profession do not meet this standard of care then they are considered to be negligent, this can result in a lawsuit.
To avoid this, a person working in the care profession must be well familiarized with the laws regarding health and safety.
You must act diligently in the prevention of injuries and falls. You must practice good communication with the person under your care and work within the legal guidelines. The General Social Care Council’s code of practice states that registered social workers have a duty to protect service users from harm, and should tell their employer or an “appropriate authority” when the practice of colleagues may be unsafe or affect standards of care.
I hope this has helped and given you enough information for you to make a decision about your job career.
