b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.
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 3.417 for Chelmunds Court is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) + (5 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 3.417
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 3.068 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chelmunds Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.068

Review submitted from a Website Submission by John P (Son-in-law of Resident) on Wednesday 14 March 2018. Relates to March 2018.
Inadequate staff ratios, only been opened since November 2017 but managers left already and current manager not empathetic to needs of residents. Real issues with safeguarding vulnerable adults - residents wander around corridors and not monitored/supervised due to not having enough staff! Food not great, procedures if there are any, not clear or reinforced, some agency staff do very little. Fab, new building but the level of care leaves much to be desired.
How likely would you be to recommend Chelmunds Court? Extremely Unlikely
