Micron House has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.500)
The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Micron House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Micron House in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 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 5 for Micron House is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Micron House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 2 positive Reviews (10 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2 Target = 0.500
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Sue C (Daughter-in-law of Resident) on Tuesday 11 April 2017. Relates to April 2017.
My mother in law went into Micron House the end of October 2016 after fracturing her hip. The care she received was excellent, she was always treated with respect and dignity and was fed wholesome nourishing meals which she thoroughly enjoyed. Sincere thanks to the manager and her dedicated staff. Sadly my mother in law passed away peacefully in March but myself and my husband will be eternally grateful for the care and kindness she received during her comparatively short time at Micron House. Having to find a care home for a loved one is a very difficult time, but Micron House is the nearest you will find to a home from home feel. I cannot praise this care home enough and again I would like to thank the manager and her staff for making the last months of my mother in laws life happy, comfortable and well cared for. Thank you all.
