History of Non-Compliance with State and Federal Standards Dating Back to 2007
The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) today announced its intention to begin the process of revoking the healthcare nursing facility license of Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center. This action is being taken following years of non-compliance with federal and state standards, with the scope and severity of the violations showing potential risk/harm and immediate jeopardy to residents.
This process affords the facility operator the ability to appear before a hearing officer to show cause why the Department should not revoke the facility's license or take other appropriate action as the circumstances require.
"We have started monitoring the facility on a daily basis," said Director of Health Michael Fine, MD. "Our primary concern is ensuring the safety and well being of its residents."
Additional information will be posted to the Department of Health website on Wednesday, March 14.
