All care organisations should undertake risk assessment that will identify hazards and the possibility of putting carers and service at risk. Risk assessments at care homes are undertaken by a trained and qualified person they should follow the principles of risk assessment by identifying the potential hazard and putting measures in to protect individual.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This essay is fine in the way that the writer has researched several acts and code of practice and lists the various aspects of them. However, the writer has failed to meet the brief and explain how this would be applied to a care plan. Consequently the essay is a mere description of different aspects of legislation.

I feel that if the writer were to plan the essay and use a particular example, it would greatly help in maintaining the focus and answering the question.
