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 4.667 for Kingsway Private Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
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 1.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingsway Private Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

Review submitted from a Postal Card by Gillian A (Daughter of Resident) on Thursday 21 July 2016. Relates to June 2016.
At the beginning of 2016 there had just been a poor review of Kingsway that was covered in the media and was very upsetting. I had always believed and observed my mother to be well cared for there since she arrived in 2012. Since the new manager arrived in January care has got even better. My mum is putting on quite a lot of weight and is always very happy. My mum is always well groomed and loves her food. I have noticed that the staff are taking excellent care to prevent skin tears and pressure points. I am very happy with Kingsway.
