5.8 Stocks Hall Nursing Home Skelmersdale has a Review Score of 5.8 (5.759)

The Review Score of 5.8 (maximum of 10) for Stocks Hall Nursing Home Skelmersdale is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Stocks Hall Nursing Home Skelmersdale in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.217 for Stocks Hall Nursing Home Skelmersdale is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.217

  • 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 1.542 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Stocks Hall Nursing Home Skelmersdale is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.083 , then divided by 2 = 0.042

  • 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 Stocks Hall Nursing Home Skelmersdale

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
  • Relative of Resident/Service User

My mum spent almost 7 months here after her original care home refused to take her back after an A+E visit with a urine infection. Mum died aged 92 probably cardiac arrests, she had, had no hospital visits nor seen a GP in 7 months- a testament to the care provided at Stocks Hall. She has recently enjoyed trips out, eating cake at a shopping centre and just over a week before she died had enjoyed the annual summer fayre, winning a tombola and eating cakes. Mums death was not expected in regard to her age and heart condition but she lived and enjoyed life up to the end. Thanks to the staff at Stocks Hall.

The care home is very good. Every member of staff knows our relatives and names her. They deal with her particular and complex needs kindly and gently. I observe similar treatment of other residents. However the overall impression of the FABRIC of the home is not good, the new floor has made a difference but improvements are desperately needed to brighten and make more homely rooms and common areas. The second bathroom on first floor should be immediately revamped.
