The Early Indicator Form was developed as part of a Learning Lessons Review about a situation in a care home that led to its closure. It is designed to be used as a checklist by professionals on care home visits to highlight any issues they come across that are not deemed as safeguarding adults concerns. For example , the environment, staff attitude or management issues. The information received allows us to form an overview of the practices within care homes and take appropriate action if required . This form is for all employees of the council and health professionals who visit care homes. Please use this form within your teams. We are working to prevent safeguarding issues.
