Summary
New guidelines to improve the quality of care for people with diabetes living in care homes have been released.

They provide a series of indicators that can help inspectors to assess whether a service is meeting the particular needs of people with diabetes.

An assessment and support framework has also been included so that care home nurses are able to determine that the residents’ diabetes needs are being met thoroughly in a way that protects their dignity and rights.
