State seeks to revoke nursing home license

Posted 3/19/12

PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Department of Health announced on March 13 its intention to revoke the license of Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center. The action is being taken following years of non-compliance with federal and state standards, with the scope and severity of the violations showing “potential harm/risk and immediate jeopardy to residents,” agency officials said.

“We have started monitoring the facility on a daily basis,” said Dr. Michael Fine, director of the R.I. Department of Health. “Our primary concern is ensuring the safety and well being of its residents.”

In a statement issued through Advocacy Solutions, Frank McMahon, representing the nursing home, said: “We believe that the state’s action is unwarranted and remain committed to our staff, families and caring for our residents. At this time, we are evaluating all options. Most importantly, we remain hopeful that our plans of action will not disrupt the lives of our residents who have called Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center home for a number of years.”
