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.

Reviewer Connection to Muirfield Care Home
Submitted from a Postal Card by Jean H on Tuesday 26 April 2016. Relates to March 2016.
For 14 years I was my mums main carer. It became impossible to provide the nursing care mum required. Muirfield nursing home kindly responded to an urgent request by the hospital at home team and social worker for emergency care. A small but adequate room was made available at short notice. Mum was admitted on 4th March 16. Family members visited mum on a daily basis all were impressed by the standard of care provided and the friendly manner and consideration by all staff without exception. Sadly mum died on 28th March 16, having spent nearly 24 days there. I and my family would have no hesitation in recommending this nursing home as an example of how such establishments should be managed.
