Second annual report on deprivation of liberty safeguards

Some care homes and hospitals are still not meeting their obligations on liberty safeguards, according to Care Quality Commission second annual report.

The deprivation of liberty safeguards aim to protect people’s human rights in circumstances where they cannot consent to their care or treatment.

Since 2009, Care Quality Commission has been monitoring the use of the safeguards in hospitals and care homes as part of our broader inspection programme.
