* Care Quality Commission is responsible for the registration and inspection of social care services in England.
The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Castle View is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Castle View in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 5 for Castle View is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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:
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.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.
If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.
The 1.693 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Castle View is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 2.6 positive Reviews (13 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2.6 Target = 0.385 , then divided by 2 = 0.193
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Castle View has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.693) from 1 Reviews
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Venessa P (Daughter of Resident) on Tuesday 13 September 2016. Relates to September 2016.
This care home has excellent standards of care, the carers are very professional at all times. Safeguarding is excellent as the bedrooms are laid out with minimum risk to the service users. Confidentiality is also of a high standard as the senior will always ask me into the office to discuss moms needs. The food choice for residents is excellent and freshly cooked. All the residents appear happy and all have a smile on their face. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, residents aren't left in the lounge unattended as the carers are constantly popping into the room to check on residents. This care home should win an award for their high standards of care, as an ex social-worker, this is by far the best I have seen. I would also like to add that the care staff engage regularly with activities for the residents. I truly commend your standards of care thank you so much for your compassion towards our family well done
How likely would you be to recommend Castle View? Extremely Likely
