Reviews

9 Northfield Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9 (9.044)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Northfield Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Northfield Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.568 for Northfield Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 81 Ratings = 4.568

  • 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 4.476 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Northfield Nursing Home is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.476

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

My initial thought on entering Northfield Nursing Home was how clean it was, and the care for my mother was first class.
The first thing she said to me was how nice all the staff were.
It makes me feel better knowing she is being looked after.
Thank you.

My mother only received palliative care for a short space of time, but her care was excellent, we were kept well informed by staff and doctors alike. The admin member of staff who dealt with me was also excellent.

The actual fabric of the building is in need of some attention but did not detract from my mothers care at all.

I'm so glad my Mom is being looked at by such caring and dedicated staff. When Mom doesn't feel like talking I sit and watch how kind and patient they are with the residents. They make sure they have company and a natter in the dayroom. Not only do they care for the residents they also look after the family. My daughter and I can not fault them.
Well done!

My grandma came into Northfields Nursing Home for rehabilitation from hospital. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you. They have really looked after my gran. I'm so pleased with the care she is receiving. The home is very clean, standards are very high. You always seem to hear bad things about care homes but never hear the good things. I'm so glad I've been given the opportunity to fill this form in.

On 5/7/2016 my 81 year old Mother sadly passed away.
She was in rehabilitation care at Northfield after a period somewhere else, her 2nd stay in Northfield, after a previous period in another place.
Mum was extremely ill, frail, unable to walk, eat or look after herself. We, her family were gravely concerned but wary as to care at Northfield, firstly on 30/04/16. From admittance to discharge on 31/5/16, Mum was walking, eating, had gained weight and came home. The care was of the highest standard, the nursing, physio and overall attention to her wellbeing and improvement was second to none.
Mum fell ill again, spent a week in another place and then the last week of her life at Northfield .
The Northfield team did EVERYTHING possible to make that last week the best it could be not just for Mum but for all of us too. A difficult time was made easier, less stressful because of the respectful, informed, caring, competent way they managed the final days of Mums life. Thank you SO, SO much.
