Reviews

8.4 Nightingale's Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.385)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Nightingale's Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nightingale's Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.872 for Nightingale's Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.872

  • 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 3.513 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nightingale's Nursing Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.263

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

The needs of my mother were sympathetically met by very caring, attentive and friendly staff. Nightingales were most considerate and welcoming to my elderly father too, as he visited each afternoon.
Her room was comfortable, practical and set in very pleasant grounds.

My husband stayed at the Nightingale's from September until he passed away in January. The matron and staff were very caring and compassionate in all that they did.
I would not hesitate to recommend this home. Before my husband passed away, he said he couldn't be happier to be staying there. Best Nursing home there is.

My father was admitted in July 2015 due to coming to the end of his life. The love, care and support we all had as a family was exceptional. The staff were understanding and treated my dad with the dignity and respect he deserved in his final hours. He was in a lovely room with a view over a garden which we were able to describe to him although he wasn't conscious he would have loved it. He was only there for 30 hours but in that time the care team understood his every need. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to be cared for to a high standard. We couldn't have chosen a better place. Thank you

In short all staff did not just show how much they cared for my dad they went above and beyond helping us get him home. Our extreme gratitude to the matron for her help and not to forget all the staff involved in my dad's care, thank you all.
