RISK TAKING & RISK MANAGEMENT
Staff at Maksanus Care Services Ltd understand that there is a delicate and difficult balance between Service Users' self-determination in risk taking, and the responsibility of carers to protect Service Users from self-harm or from unintentionally harming others.
The issue is further complicated when a Service User may not be able to make informed decisions. The assessment of risk is addressed as part of the commencement of service process for each person and the results integrated in the Service User Plan.
By this process of integration the views of the Service User, principal carer, family members and professional advisors will be fully taken into account, as part of the participative Service User Planning process. The following checklist of issues forms the basis of the risk management assessment. Each issue will be discussed in detail and those discussions will be recorded and will determine the way in which Maksanus Care Services Ltd aims to undertake to meet the Service User's own wishes about their lifestyle involving:
Attendance at clubs and centres
Going to church and other activities
Engaging in leisure and recreational pursuits
Use of stairs
Degree of independence
Seeking help in an emergency
