The explore:

This one was a straight forward easy one and was not even planned we just in the area anyway, Care home itself looks like it got brought and something then failed.

Fun little explore. I remember reading about this one online year ago when it closed.

History :

A care home in Westgate-on-Sea has officially been closed due to serious concerns about the welfare of elderly residents. An unannounced inspection of Springfield Residential Home in Hengist Road by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) between June 23 and 26 this year revealed serious risks. The report stated: "Serious risks to people were not recognised, assessed and managed. People were at risk of choking and falling and of being neglected."These risks to people were not being managed leaving people at further risk. People did not get the care and support that they needed."Staff did not always follow the instructions of doctors and nurses to support people’s health needs."The inspection also found that the 10 remaining residents in the home were at increased risk of choking, falling, developing pressure sores, malnutrition and dehydration.
