‘Requires Improvement’ Rating For Shanklin’s Springfield Nursing Home

Springfield in Shanklin

Springfield Nursing Home was not always safe because its kitchen was not clean and infection risks posed by some equipment were not managed in line with best practice guidance, CQC Inspectors found during a visit in March.

But residents were protected from the risk of abuse and staff knew how to identify, prevent and report it and understood how to keep people safe in an emergency.

Read the CQC report published earlier this month.

Inspectors found the Shanklin home was not always well-led and that the provider had failed to ensure that all necessary notifications to the CQC were submitted.

Although the Scio Healthcare Limited-run home on Arthur’s Hill was rated as “requires improvement” overall, it was given a good rating in three other areas inspected. It changed hands, alongside two other homes, in February as Isle of Wight Radio reported.

Inspectors noted that staff were kind and caring and the atmosphere was “open and friendly”.
