Reviews

8.2 Forth Bay Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.165)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Forth Bay Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Forth Bay Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 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 4.382 for Forth Bay Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 34 Ratings = 4.382

  • 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 3.783 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Forth Bay Nursing Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.283

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

Fiona Day

Job Title: Registered Manager

Joined: 2015

Description:

As Manager of Forth Bay, Fiona leads her professional staff team in providing the highest level of residential and nursing care and support for those living at the home.

Fiona joined Forth Bay as a newly qualified Staff Nurse in 2001 and has since taken on a number of senior roles including Charge Nurse in 2003 and Deputy Manager in 2006. It is this in-depth knowledge of the home that has equipped Fiona well for the role of Home Manager, where she will be working hard to ensure that those in her care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

‘I strive to give our residents the care and lifestyle they wish to have and endeavour to involve them in every aspect of their care.’

As well as spending time with residents and making sure that they are comfortable, safe and happy, Fiona sees it as an important part of her role to act as a mentor to her team. She firmly believes that a happy, fulfilled and motivated staff team will be in a better position to consistently deliver a high standard of care.

Away from work, Fiona enjoys a range of hobbies including arts and crafts and having lived in the region for over 30 years, she loves nothing more than taking in the picturesque local scenery whilst walking her beloved dog.
