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 2.75 for Pontypridd Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (1 Excellents x 5) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 2.75
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 Pontypridd Nursing Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Susan C (Daughter of Resident) on Thursday 10 August 2017. Relates to September 2016.
Our father was a resident for 7 weeks until 26.7.16. Prior to his entry, a detailed care plan was prepared and we were assured his needs would be addressed.
He needed a plate guard, spoon and food cut up at meal times, also a mug with a suitable handle which we provided. When our visits coincided with meal times we were dismayed to find no plate guard, no food cut up and a knife and fork (which was of no use). We always had to ask staff to rectify this. Also instead of the mugs (which had his name on), he would be given a cup he could not hold.
There were other issues with his personal care including on one occasion his hearing aid not put in.
He did not have Dementia but needed communication to be very specific and time to respond to questions. After 6 weeks and numerous complaints to staff, it was still not being done. We felt his care plan was not being implemented and staff seemed unaware of his basic needs. We felt these issues would never be resolved and decided he would not stay.
