6.8 Springfield Care Home has a Review Score of 6.8 (6.813)

The Review Score of 6.8 (maximum of 10) for Springfield Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 3.1 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Springfield Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • 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 3.741 for Springfield Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (14 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) + (4 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 27 Ratings = 3.741

  • 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 3.072 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Springfield Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.072

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

Springfield is one of the most caring homes I have had the good fortune to find. My husband has Alzheimers disease and has resided in Springfield over the past month. The staff and management have shown great kindness, a lot of patience both with my husband and myself, especially when asking questions and making observations about his care. They have made every effort to alleviate any initial problems relating to my husband's settling in at the home.

Thank you, for your kind comments about your recent experience at Springfield Care Home. Our residents’ wellbeing is our main priority and it is great to hear that you were so pleased with the quality of our care. All of our staff are committed to providing the best possible care experience for all of our residents and it is very rewarding to have their efforts recognised.

This is the best Nursing Home of the three care homes which my mother has been cared for in and the Care for my mother here is Excellent. Staff attention to my mother is regular e.g. when she needs cleaning, feeding, washing. Her food is poor because she refuses to have dentures and therefore cannot eat appetising food from the home as most of her food is purified there.

I feel relieved when I leave Springfield. The home is dirty. One public room where my relative used to sit had a door which was very scratched and dirty. The cabinet where the TV sat had a glass window which was very dirty. The home smelled of urine. It is just upsetting to think poorly people have to be in such a place. It is short staffed. When a shower was asked for as none was offered it took approximately five days before getting one. I would not recommend this home. It is depressing and requires urgent attention.
