Assisted Living Rules and Regulations in Rhode Island
Many consumers rely on information provided by state regulatory agencies when searching for quality senior care for themselves or loved ones. However, public access to assisted living records differs from state to state. Here is quick look at the accessibility and transparency of assisted living records in Rhode Island.
Public Records and License Status
Rhode Island offers limited access and transparency into assisted living records. Rating in the lowest 25% of all states, Rhode Island does not make information concerning inspections or violations available online.
For a searchable list of assisted living facilities in Rhode Island go to the Rhode Island Department of Health Online Verification and Complaint Submission website. To learn more about the background of assisted living communities, contact the Rhode Island Department of Elderly Affairs. Consumers may also request additional information through the Freedom of Information Act.
Violations and Resident Protection
While Rhode Island does provide an updated and searchable list of assisted living communities online, they do not post inspections, complaints, survey results or violations online. They do provide information about special licensing for care but do not provide information about capacity limits, payment types, contact information nor the price of care.
Rhode Island conducts inspections annually and can fine communities for non-compliance.
