Policy Statement

This policy sets out the values, principles and policies underpinning this care home’s approach to the discovery that a service user is missing. It is written in line with the safeguarding standards (particularly 26, 27 and 29) developed under the Regulated Services (Service Providers and Responsible Individuals) (Wales) Regulations 2017.

Through its policy and procedures, the home also seeks to comply with the requirements to report serious instances through the Care Inspectorate Wales’ (CIW) notification procedures and the local Adults Safeguarding Board’s procedures and take the appropriate actions in the event of accidents or in the event of a service user going missing from the home and remaining at risk.
