With regard to the Boil Water Advisory issued Sunday, September 22, please see the enclosed press release from the Rhode Island Department of Health for an update.
In addition, please be advised that bottled water is being provided to all patients. All hospital food is being prepared with water that has been heated to an appropriate temperature. Patients should also be advised that bathing is safe but that water should not be ingested. Bottled water is also being provided to all patients so they may brush their teeth.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
