RDB Assessment Reports

RDB Assessment Report The RDB Star Rating Assessment is designed to be developmental, evaluative and flexible to assist homes committed to delivering a quality service. Therefore, the report has been written to highlight strengths within the home and to identify the RDB care standards which should be reviewed and developed.

The report provides accurate information on the home’s care provision at the time of the assessment. The evidence for the RDB assessment data is collected by the Care Quality Assessor (CQA) from interviews with Management, Residents and Staff whilst reviewing the homes policies, procedures and documentation.

The information contained within this report provides a detailed analysis of the home’s care provision (actual and perceived) as assessed against the RDB care standards and questionnaires and contains the following:

  • Star rating achieved
  • Resident and personnel survey graphs
  • Star rating graphs
  • A summary report

The dynamic nature of the assessment process and its focus on person-centred care, staff knowledge, attitudes and behaviours as well as resident experience means that any changes in management, staff or residents over the last 12 months will have a bearing on the home’s results, when compared to the previous RDB star rating assessment.
