Unit 3

Positive care environment

Ao1

During both of the care environments in which I have worked I have been able to witness how the care value base is implemented. The care value base is an ethical code which governs how carers should act. It is designed to guide the practise of professionals in working situations, to be certain that they are not discriminating, being unkind, or providing poor care or poor services to the service user.

For the purpose of this Unit I have decided to discuss how I feel a positive care environment was achieved in the nursing home I worked in.

The care value base covers five main areas:

1. Promoting anti-discriminatory practice: Carers have a duty to promote anti-discriminatory practice in their professional lives.

2. Maintaining confidentiality: Clients must know that they can trust their carers: Clients may be put at risk and their self esteem damaged if confidential information is shared with others, and there are legal requirements to keep personal records confidential.

3. Promoting and supporting individual rights.

4. Acknowledging individuals' personal beliefs and identities.

5. Promoting effective communication.
