  • 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.556 for Chestnut House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.556

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.

    The 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chestnut House Nursing Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 17 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 17 Target = 0
