  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.295 for Ringshill Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (17 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.295

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.276 for Ringshill Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 12 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 12 Positive Reviews = 1.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (12 Positive Reviews ÷ 87 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.276

My mother has only been here six weeks but have been pleasantly surprised how well she has settled in. We expected a lot more problems. We have found the staff all of them very kind, friendly and caring. The coffee's not bad either.

Everyone that works on my brothers floor are very friendly and nice to us and my brother even down to the cleaning ladies to laundry ladies. I do think though it would be nice to have a few more carers to be able to spend more time with the clients in the home. The food is really good and always ample and the home is beautifully clean, very pleased with this home. I don't know why so many people outside the home have said it is no good here as I feel very happy with everyone here. All very helpful and do all that they can to make him happy. Thank you.

Since my mother has been in Ringshill Care Home we have had no cause for complaint. My mother is unable to write since a stroke so I have filled the form in for her. The opinions are hers. She is quite content where she is, and gets on well with the staff.

Staff are very kind and caring but under constant pressure, patients need much more stimulation - nothing appears to happen - is there any? They appear to be left on their own just to sit or be left in bed - no activities seem to go on.

Katie Wilkinson, Home Manager at Ringshill Care Home responded to this review on 04 Feb 2016:

Thank you for taking the time to review Ringshill - we really appreciate all feedback and comments. I’d like to discuss activities in more detail with you as I can assure you we have a dedicated Personal Activities Leader who provides regular activities for residents to take part in if they wish. We’ve also recently acquired an allotment which will provide an area for residents to enjoy once the weather starts to improve. My door is always open so please come in for a chat, maybe you have some activity ideas you’d like to see introduced? Look forward to speaking with you and thank you again for the review.

My mum has been admitted to Ringshill for two weeks respite. Despite my original concern at having to put mum into a care home, the staff at Ringshill couldn't be nicer and have put my mind at complete rest. They are kind, caring, extremely helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them and I am extremely impressed. The home is clean and well run, the food is very good and the atmosphere is like a family.

I feel we are well taken care of. The staff are very helpful and courteous. I think it is a well run establishment. I would feel safer it there were more security helpers.

My husband has been a resident for almost two years, and I would recommend the home. The staff are excellent and very caring, but the lack of permanent management staff and permanent nursing staff has been very detrimental. I believe this will change! One of the reasons why we chose RingsHill was that everybody, staff and residents were smiling when I visited. And they still are, often under difficult circumstances.

Despite a few negative comments 3 years ago from some locals, we have found that if we've had any comments (not complaints!) we have always seen the situation resolved quickly. The staff have formed good relationships, very caring with mum.
