Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.386 for Kingsgate Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (25 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 57 Ratings = 4.386

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 provider 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.41 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingsgate Nursing Home is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.41

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

The staff (in particular!) and general level of care are extremely good and very comforting for my brother and me. (Her own room furniture could be a little nicer but OK.)

My mother has spent over three years here, she is well looked after by very caring staff. Her likes and dislikes are respected. Her medical needs are identified in a friendly manner and I am kept informed of any change very quickly.

My relative was transferred from hospital for nursing care. All the staff treated him and our family with respect and friendliness. Whilst his stay was short, it was comforting to know that his final days were peaceful, comfortable and dignified.

Colette Pearse, Home Manager at Kingsgate Nursing Home responded to this review on 21 Apr 2017:

Many thanks For your kind words Andrew.

The review was very simple but thorough. The staff had kept us informed throughout the year on our mum's condition so the review went over these points and what the plan to care for our mum would be as her needs changed.
The staff were so knowledgeable and understanding and understood how our family felt about having our mum in care
