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.

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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Earlsferry House Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3

Review submitted from a Postal Card by G B (Wife of Resident) on Friday 20 April 2018. Relates to February 2018.
We first visited Earlsferry in November 2017 as I was looking for a nursing home for my husband who has Parkinson's and had been in the hospital. The welcome we received was most reassuring and supportive as it was a huge change to our lives.
All our questions were answered and we went on the waiting list. A room became available in January 2018 and my husbands care plan was swiftly put in place and added to our first couple of weeks. We were encouraged to ask questions and highlight any concerns. We met the GP and other specialists within the 1st three weeks (e.g. podiatry and speech therapists).
How likely would you be to recommend Earlsferry House Care Home? Extremely Likely
