The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Broom Lane Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 3.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Broom Lane Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 4 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 3.938 for Broom Lane Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 3.938

  • 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 4.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Broom Lane Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered beds ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.333

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

In my opinion, it is a decent care home but the staffing levels at times are not good.

My mother came to the home for some respite care for my mother and our family as we were wanting to take a short break, we found the care staff were very welcoming to both my mother and us. They could not do enough at the home. My mother really enjoyed staying at the home and even went on a trip to Cleethorpes, she is booked in at the end of November for another 2 weeks.
