Barnsley care agency 'recruitment procedures unsafe'
A careagency which left people "at risk of avoidable harm" by not ensuring staff had been properly trained has been put into special measures.
Stars Social Support, which provides personal care to people living in their own home, was inspected by the Care Quality Commission earlier this year.
Stars Social Support为住在自己家里的人提供个人护理，今年早些时候接受了护理质量委员会的检查。
Inspectors found safe recruitment procedures were not in place to make sure suitable staff were employed.
The Barnsley-based service has not yet responded to a request for comment.
A report following the inspection statesthat "safe recruitment procedures were not in place to ensure only staff suitable to work in the caring profession were employed."
It said people's references had not been followed up after they had been requested, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.
The report added: "When the disclosure and barring service (DBS) identified concerns, a risk assessment had not been completed to assess staff suitability."
Inspectors also found not all staff who provided care had received appropriate training or training updates to ensure they were competent.
The CQC said the service would be inspected in six monthS and if improvement had not been made it would "take action in line with our enforcement procedures".
