a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.
The Average Rating of 4.667 for Forest View is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.
The 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Forest View is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = -0.25
Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered beds ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Forest View
Submitted from a Website Submission by Chris P on Thursday 3 September 2015. Relates to September 2015.
My mother is a resident at Forestview and she is extremely happy there and well looked after. I have nothing but appreciation for all the hardworking staff that work there. It's a shame that their efforts can't be rewarded and reflected in their pay packets. For what is a vital service, they don't get paid nearly enough and for all those staff members that look after my mother, and other residents, at night, I was shocked to discover that they don't get paid any extra for working unsociable hours.
