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 5 for Sherwood Forest Care Centre 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 3.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sherwood Forest Care Centre is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.067
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Postal Card by S W (Wife of Resident) on Tuesday 28 March 2017. Relates to March 2017.
My husband who has dementia often refers to staying "in a hotel" when talking about Sherwood Forest Care Centre. His room and ensuite are cleaned every day. The home has a happy atmosphere and holds many events that residents relatives are invited to. There is a full-time activities manager who is excellent at arranging different activities and encourages residents to participate. Residents that I have observed and seen with my husband are treated very well, with respect and dignity. The food is lovely and plentiful with choice. My husband looks forward to going to the café as he calls it for meals.
