Mrs BB – published December 2016
The Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) has today (9th December 2016) published a Safeguarding Adults Review into the death of a woman living with dementia. This is a very sad death and our thoughts are with the family who have lost a loved one.
This review has been carried out by Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board, and the Independent Chair wishes to record her condolences and thanks the family for their assistance throughout the process.
Under the provisions of the Care Act 2014 all Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs) are required to undertake a Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR), overseen by an Independent Report Writer, in order to learn lessons and improve practice when a situation arises with a person in their area who requires care and support, where doubts have been raised about the quality of service they received and deserved.
The key aim of the SAR is not to investigate or apportion blame, but to examine professional practice and adjust this practice in light of lessons learnt. These lessons are vital to reduce the risk of re-occurrence.
A summary of the report, including a learning action plan, and the full report are published here.
