Deprivation of Liberty Standards (DoLS)
DoLS ensures people who cannot consent to their care arrangements in a care home or hospital are protected if those arrangements deprive them of their liberty.
The Liquidlogic Adults’ Social Care system (LAS) allows for the DoLS process to be followed through from the initial letter from the Care Home or Hospital to tracking of assessment outcomes, suspensions, reviews, further authorisations, and ultimately closure.
A fundamental element of the DoLS process is the completion of DoLS forms, this can be carried out by the council, a supervisory body, or other involved professionals. DoLS functionality within LAS has been configured using the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) suite of forms as a baseline. The intelligent design of forms capability within LAS is utilised to further enhance form usability and ease of use.
