Reviews

9.5 Blyth House Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.477)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Blyth House Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Blyth House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.477 for Blyth House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 176 Ratings = 4.477

  • 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:

    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 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.

    3. 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blyth House Nursing Home is based on 15 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 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 3.2 Target Reached = 1

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

The care and service given to my mother has made it easy to not worry about her. If I need a care home in the future I hope I am taken care of by Blyth House.

A nursing home that has an atmosphere of home, the staff have a very caring attitude towards the residents and their families and do their utmost to help in their daily life, ensuring they get what they require. When really ill, they are cared for in what I can only describe as good old fashioned nursing care, which what everyone would hope for.

The staff are fantastic, kind and caring. The home is always clean and my mum is always clean and in clean clothing. They really try to be a home away from home for the residents.
I'm very appreciative for everything.

Nurses and care workers continued a friendly relationship with my mother, a bedridden, demented, long term resident aged 104. Many staff members chatted with my mother, more successfully than me I think, when she no longer knew who I was.Nursing care was excellent throughout and at her death on 26th July. The family were promptly told of medical concerns and, in conversation and many refreshments, supported during the final hours, Matron and other staff dealt calmly, promptly and excellently with the GP, NHS and undertakers, taking a burden off the grieving family.

Helpful and caring staff look after my mother in difficult circumstances. The facilities are a bit limited by more than adequate for mother's needs.

Extremely welcoming and friendly. Dad is definitely in a safe environment with higher quality care than I and my husband can provide with support from district nurses. We are confident he is comfortable and has access to medical care in a much more timely manner.
