Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.652 for Haighfield Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.652

  • 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 3.472 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Haighfield 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.222

  • 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 Haighfield Nursing Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

My mother has been a resident of the Haighfield Nursing Home for a number of years. I visit on a regular basis and am very happy with the standard of the home. The management and staff are always very helpful and friendly. My mother has dementia and I feel all the staff are very caring and treat her with dignity. I always come away from the Haighfield with peace of mind feeling mum is being well looked after in a caring, safe environment.

My mum is treated with kindness and respect by the Haighfield staff and it is a relief and reassuring to know that she is being cared for well when we can't be there. The nursing staff know the importance of medications being given on time, every time. Rooms are clean, they vary in size and some have lovely views of the hills and countryside. There are optional activities in place every week, which is really important as some homes don't seem to offer much in this respect, and a typical week may include across the week bingo, dominoes, arts and crafts, pamper sessions such as manicures, music and songs. A hairdresser visits once a week. They regularly have local singers, groups, or special interest activities (birds of prey with their handler, for example). There is always a choice at mealtimes and assistance provided if needed. The carers are very friendly and it is clear that this is more than just a job for them.
