b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.333 for Pondsmead Nursing & Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.333
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 3.066 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pondsmead Nursing & Residential Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 15.2 positive Reviews (76 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15.2 Target = 0.066

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Wendy D (Daughter of Resident) on Friday 27 April 2018. Relates to April 2018.
My father has been in Pondsmead for a few weeks and my mother has now joined him in the home.
At first, I was worried that this was the right place for them, however, after a few visits, I am happy with the home.
In general, the home is clean although I do think the bedding is a bit worn and could do with replacing.
Most of the staff are very kind and caring (there is the odd one who doesn't appear to be as kind) and welcome relatives when they visit.
There are no restrictions on when you can visit which is really good.
A meeting was held during one of our visits which gave residents and relatives a chance to raise any problems and put forward any suggestions.
I am relieved to know that my parents are safe and being well looked after.
I would certainly recommend this home.
