  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.875 for Kings Court is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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:

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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 3.172 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kings Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5.8 Target = 0.172

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

8 Kings Court has a Review Score of 8 (8.047) from 2 Reviews

I cannot praise too highly the staff at Kings Courts Nursing Home. The staff are kind, hardworking and conscientious and the care that my mother received was excellent. Mum had always been anxious about going in to care home but the staff very quickly helped her to feel at home and put her at her ease. As a family, we also felt that we were welcome and the staff were both kind and courteous to us at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kings Court Nursing Home to anyone who may find themselves in need of full time residential or nursing care.

Our mother arrived at Kings Court in February 2014 and our lives have been enriched in so many ways. The care she receives is second to none and for a long time now she has been much more contended and calmer and this is entirely as a result of the outstanding care she is receiving. The staff are so friendly and helpful, ever kind and caring and totally dedicated to looking after her every need. Nothing is too much trouble and they always have time to listen to her and talk to her. The team also always have time for my sister and I, they welcome us warmly and include us in all areas of our mother's care, they have become like a second family and help us enormously in understanding our mother's dementia. The food at the home is excellent and I would recommend the home to other friends!
