Reviews

9 Ringshill Care Home has a Review Score of 9 (8.977)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Ringshill Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ringshill Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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 4.402 for Ringshill Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.402

  • 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:

    1. 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.

    2. 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 4.575 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ringshill Care Home is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 17.4 positive Reviews (87 registered beds ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 17.4 Target = 0.575

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Staff are friendly and helpful. I feel confident that they care for mum. Mum is always happy, well-fed and entertained. My only concern is that sometimes dressings to wounds are not changed every day.

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.
