b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 3 for Bedford Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (1 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 3
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bedford Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 36 positive Reviews (180 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 36 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Postal Card by Barbara M (Daughter of Resident) on Wednesday 7 October 2015. Relates to October 2015.
I visit my mum and aunt at Bedford Leigh, my overall view of this is good with one or two exceptions;
1. General air quality is poor, often smelling quite unpleasant on entry to the block. Air conditioning would be an advantage to improve the residents atmosphere.
2. Bedding, towels etc. need to be replaced as some are quite old and worn.
3. Shortage of staff is sometimes evident.
