    The Review Score of 9.178 for Pennington Court Nursing Home is based on 13 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.705 for Pennington Court Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (113 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.705

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.473 for Pennington Court Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 13 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 13 Positive Reviews = 1.300 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (13 Positive Reviews ÷ 55 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.473

My mum has been at Pennington Court for nearly 2 years, and is very well cared for by fantastic staff who look after her every need. My mum has dementia and can be awkward at times, but her care is always first class. Could not have asked for a better place for my mum to be.
The staff are all really friendly, and always answer my questions about my mum and take the time to have a chat to.

We have been very pleased with dad's care at Pennington Court. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Dad was in two other nursing homes before this one but did not settle and we weren't comfortable with him in those homes. The food wasn't up to the standard in this home. The staff took a lot longer to come to dad when buzzer was pressed. Here at Pennington we have peace of mind knowing dad is being cared for.
