Statws

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made under the Care Standards Act 2000 ('the Act') and apply in relation to care homes in Wales. Parts I and II of the Act provide for the National Assembly to, in relation to Wales, register and inspect establishments and agencies. It also provides powers for regulations to be made by the National Assembly in relation to Wales governing the conduct of establishments and agencies. The majority of Parts I and II of the Act (in so far as not already in force) will be brought into force on 1st April 2002.

These new arrangements replace the regulatory system provided for in relation to residential care and nursing homes under the Registered Homes Act 1984.

Regulation 3 excludes from the definition of care home under section 3 of the Act: family care settings (which includes the continuing care of certain foster children after the age of eighteen); establishments that provide accommodation for less than 28 days in a year; certain NHS facilities providing nursing; and certain education institutions.

Under regulations 4 and 5, each home must have a statement of purpose consisting of the matters set out in Schedule 1, and supply a guide to the home to each service user.

Regulations 7 to 10 make provision about the fitness of the persons carrying on and managing the home, and require satisfactory information to be available in relation to certain specified matters. Where an organisation carries on the home, it must nominate a responsible individual in respect of whom this information must be available (regulation 7). Regulation 8 prescribes the circumstances where a manager must be appointed for the home, and regulation 10 imposes general requirements in relation to the proper conduct of the home, and the need for appropriate training.

Part III makes provision about the conduct of care homes, in particular as to the health and welfare of service users, and as to the facilities and services that are to be provided. Provision is also made about record keeping, the staffing of homes, the fitness of workers and about complaints.

Part IV makes provision about the suitability of premises and about fire precautions. Part V deals with the management of care homes. Regulation 25 requires the registered person to establish a system for reviewing and improving the quality of care provided by the home. Regulation 26 imposes requirements relating to the home’s financial position. Regulation 27 requires the registered provider to visit the home as prescribed. Part VI makes special provision which applies where children are accommodated in the home.

Part VII deals with miscellaneous matters including the giving of notices to the National Assembly. Regulation 44 provides for offences. Regulations 45 and 46 effect a modification of the regulations in respect of adult placement carers. Regulation 48 allows the National Assembly to specify offices in parts of Wales for the giving of notices to it under the Regulations.
