The staff at Connelly Law offers our congratulations to those who have worked hard to once again gain full accreditation from The Joint Commission for the Eleanor Slater Hospital system. The hospital, Rhode Island's only facility for those with complex medical and psychiatric needs, was denied accreditation earlier in the year due to a number of issues that needed correction.
The Eleanor Slater system has campuses in Cranson and Burrillville, locations which have been the focus of scrutiny from both the media and lawmakers, who say that politics had played a role in the issues that were left unaddressed for years by multiple administrations.
"The staff at the hospital and many others deserve a great amount of credit for what they have been able to accomplish in a short period of time, from building conditions to the culture of care; they have addressed dozens of concerns,'' Rhode Island's Governor McKee told the media.
