NEW KLOE SUMMARY FOR CARE HOME PROVIDERS

As you are no doubt aware there were changes made to the way CQC inspect that came into force on November 2017.

Responding to feedback from their Next Phase consultation, changes were made to the KLOEs and prompts (the revised versions are available on the CQC website)

CQCs inspection teams will now use one single assessment framework to assess adult social care services, replacing the previous separate versions for different types of services which duplicated many of the KLOEs and prompts. This should simplify the process for organisations that provide more than one service.

There is now much more focus on the individual and on organisational responsibility.

For a summary of some of the key changes to be aware of within the 5 domains of inspection contact Care4Quality.

  • SAFE 
  • EFFECTIVE  
  • CARING  
  • RESPONSIVE

Managers and providers should familiarise themselves with the new KLOEs and the ratings characteristics so that they can prepare and plan appropriately for their next inspection.
