Reviews

9.5 Fountain Place Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.483)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fountain Place Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 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 4.733 for Fountain Place Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 45 Ratings = 4.733

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fountain Place Nursing Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 3.4 positive Reviews (17 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 3.4 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.

Reviewer Connection to Fountain Place Nursing Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

My father entered Fountain Place, the nursing home wing of Avon Park from the hospital in August 2017. He, I and our family have always been treated with patience, respect and consideration.

Always informed and advised by the reassuringly calm and kind staff both day and night.

Like entering the home of a generous friend, I have noticed an ease and proficiency within the staff and their dealings with my father that quickly reassures.

I have been able to step into my role of daughter and am very grateful for this.

My mother was admitted from the hospital for terminal care. She received fantastic care in every regard and we, her relatives, were treated with huge consideration and courtesy. I'd especially single out two carers for the way they dealt with her but all were outstanding and helped make hers an outstandingly "good death" for which we are most grateful.
