Informative code of practice,
This review is from: Deprivation of liberty safeguards: code of practice to supplement the main Mental Capacity Act 2005 code of practice (Final Edition) (Paperback)
That clearly sets out the expectations of what should happen when it becomes necessary to limit someones liberty, to ensure their safety. Clearly written, it takes a step approach to what should be considered at different times and in diferent situations.
The legal framework of caring for adults is complex and this forms part of that framework. Other laws / guidance are cross referenced where there is an overlap in laws / duties. This again prompts consideration of whether there are others ways of supporting someone, before taking the step of removing their liberty.
This is not a quick read - it takes time to reflect and apply the guidiance to everyday situations - however I would recommend it to any one working with or caring for adults who may no longer beale to make decisions or care for themselves.
