We are excited to announce that one of our communities, EPOCH on Blackstone Boulevard, recently earned deficiency-free status from the Rhode Island Department of Health.
Every year, the department visits all Rhode Island skilled nursing facilities to conduct routine, unannounced inspections. Health officials assess compliance with state standards of care in dining, quality of care and cleanliness, nursing, administrative leadership and more. Because the regulations grow increasingly strict every year, earning a deficiency-free status has become a rare feat.
Receiving the highest score on the health survey is truly a testament to the high quality of care Blackstone provides. The team there is proud of their accomplishment, as they should be! Congrats to the Blackstone staff.
