Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Craigdun Private Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Craigdun Private Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.354 for Craigdun Private Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 82 Ratings = 4.354

  • 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 4.909 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Craigdun Private 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target = 0.909

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

9.3 Craigdun Private Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.263) from 7 Reviews

My stepfather stayed at Craigdun Private Nursing Home for a few weeks respite care. All of the staff from top to bottom and in all areas of the home were excellent and showed outstanding care for their residents. The atmosphere within the home was happy, warm and caring. Outstanding. Would recommend.

Having compared a few other homes a year ago, I found Craigdun to be compact with no big open spaces to confuse residents, A year later, I've found the home to be perfect in all ways and the staff are second to none. Plenty of time for the residents and visitors. Couldn't ask for better. Just keep up the good work.
