Ben Challinor a CQC inspector says: ‘One of the first things I will look for when working with a care operator is whether a thorough induction process is in place for all new staff. This will include an internal in-house induction and an external accredited induction to care. It is not acceptable for a manager to claim that they have an induction programme but that time constraints make it impossible to implement’ (Challinor, February 2017, Nursing & Residential Care).
The CQC report ‘Driving Improvement’ released in June 2018 also highlights the importance of staff training and a solid induction programme: ‘…make sure that new staff coming in were suitable, and improved induction policies led to staff being better prepared. Other features of poorly performing providers were a lack of training and staff appraisals: improving in these areas paid dividends.’
