Care is average or slightly higher. Some of the employees have attitudes and care more about themselves than about the patients. Never seems as though they have enough staff working. No one is ever available when you need them

The Peritoneal Dialysis Nurse, Donna, acts very unprofessional and sees to always be at odds with us. When I attempted to move to another facility it is my opinion and my wifes opinion, who is an RN erself that they interfered with that transfer to protect their potential liability. I actually recorded a conversation with the doctor and staff, Donna was not there that day, and you can hear it at: RIhospitalTransplant (dot) com
