Nursing and Residential Homes Legislation

Homes are registered in Jersey under the Nursing and Residential Homes (Jersey) Law 1994 and the associated Orders which are the Residential Homes (General Provisions) (Jersey) Order 1995 and the Nursing Homes and Mental Nursing Homes (General Provisions) (Jersey) Order 1995.

1.    Copies of the above law and orders can be bought from the States Book Shop, Morier House, Halkett Place, St Helier

2.    Registration and Inspection of Nursing and Residential homes is carried out on behalf of the Health and Social Services Minister by Public Health Services at Le Bas Centre. By law registered homes must be inspected by an authorised officer not less than twice in every period of 12 months.


 What is the difference between nursing and residential care homes

1.      Residential homes give both board and personal care for those by reason of old age, disablement, past or present dependence on alcohol or drugs, or past or present mental disorder.

2.      Nursing homes provide nursing for people suffering from any sickness, injury or infirmity. Nursing homes may also provide a range of other specialist medical services.

3.      Mental Nursing Homes provide nursing or other medical treatment ( including care, habilitation or rehabilitation under medical supervision) for people suffering from a mental disorder.

4.      Nursing homes must be run by people with medical or nursing qualifications, residential care homes need not.

 

How do you go about setting up a nursing or residential care home?For details of setting up either class of home, contact Christine Blackwood at The Professional Care Regulatory team.  Telephone: 445798

Choosing a Home

Remember everyone is an individual, and a Home that suits one person could be quite wrong for someone else, so the choice must be made with you in mind.

There are many considerations, such as the level of care that you need, and the price you can afford.

These may reduce the options available to you to a certain extent, but you should still have a choice, and if possible, you, or a friend or relative, should visit as many Homes as possible to see whether they provide an environment in which you would feel comfortable.

Below is a series of questions you may like to think about when looking around homes.

1.      Where is the Home?

2.      Is it near family and friends?

3.      Is it in an area I know?

4.      How many residents are there?

5.      Would I prefer a larger or smaller place?

6.      Will I have my own room?

7.      Can I bring my own things - bed, pictures, chairs, etc?

8.      Can I redecorate the room?

9.      Will I be able to lock my door?

10.  Will I have somewhere safe for my valuables?

11.  Will an inventory be made of my belongings and will I get a copy?

12.  Can I still manage my own monies?

13.  Is there a choice of sitting rooms - somewhere quiet away from the television?

14.  Am I free to use all the communal rooms, eg lounge, dining room, etc at any time?

15.  Can I choose what I eat and when I eat it, or are there restricted menus and times for meals?

16.  Can I have a meal in my room if I want to?

17.  Can I make myself a snack or a cup of tea or coffee - are there available facilities?

18.  Will I be able to smoke or have a drink of alcohol if I want?

19.  Can I bring in my pet?

20.  Are there any social activities and outings organised for residents?

21.  Can I still follow my religious beliefs?

22.  Can I keep my own GP and can I see him in private?

23.  What will happen to my medication - can I continue to look after it myself?

24.  Who will be there to help me look after my personal care?

25.  Can I have a bath when I want?

26.  Who will look after me during the night and what will they help me with?

27.  Does there seem enough staff to care for the number of residents in the Home?

28.  If I am unhappy with any part of my care, how do I let people know and what action can I expect to be taken to resolve the problem?

29.  Will I be able to stay here if I become ill?

30.  Is there a residents committee?

31.  Can I have a trial stay before deciding?

32.  What are the fees and what do they include, eg laundry, toiletries, newspapers, hairdresser, chiropody etc?

33.  Do I have to pay a retainer to the Home if I am admitted to hospital?

 

The next stage

Once you have visited a few homes, and chosen the one you feel most suits your   needs, you could ask if it is possible to come in for a short stay before you make your final decision. You will need to find out how much this will cost, how the fees will be paid and what you need to take with you.

During your stay, you might find it useful again to ask the questions above.

However, if you are not able to do this, perhaps because you would not be able to return to your home at the end of the stay, you may still decide that an alternative choice of home would be better. In this case, you are always free to consider a move elsewhere, but you should check what period of notice your current home would need.

Homes are not required to give you a written contract, but as they are receiving payment (from whatever source) for your care, it is important to set out:

- What care you will get?

- What will be required of you in return?
