 Dear Friends of Hebert,

Currently we do not have any covid cases in the facility, masks are not required at this time but will be provided if you should like one. We respectfully ask that you be mindful of the time you arrive and that if it is “off hours” for our receptionists – that you patiently wait for another member of our team to be available to greet you and screen you – prior to entering the facility. This is a continued effort to maintain a safe home and work environment for the residents, visitors, and staff. We continue to closely monitor residents and staff for symptoms and continue to follow Dept. of Health guidelines.

***** Family Cookout*******

There will be a family cookout on July 17th from 05:30 pm- 07:30 Pm. Please RSVP to Lisa in Activities ASAP. We hope to see you there!

As a reminder, when dropping of smoking paraphernalia, please give them to the receptionist at the front desk so they can be properly labeled and stored individually for each resident.  Please do not give any smoking material to your loved one as not following the smoking rules could result in a loss of privileges. Each resident has a labeled draw/zipped locked bag containing their personal smoking products.   More information regarding the smoking rules and smoking times to follow. Just a friendly reminder to family and friends Please drop off all smoking materials to front desk.

While smoking outside, please be mindful as you drive past the smoking area for the safety of our residents and staff.

The facility’s visitation hours are 9:00am to 9:00pm; visiting hours may be extended under special circumstances. 

If you have any question please feel free to reach out to me, Deanna Paul , NHA

Warm regards, Deanna Paul

In an effort to keep all of our residents safe and to minimize risk at Hebert’s, please note that these are the smoking program policies:

  • All smoking materials (cigarettes, lighters, vapes, tobacco, etc will be held by the facility and not the residents.
  • Smoking materials will be handed in at the front desk and place in smoking cart for the resident
  • All smoking will be outdoors (at designated area) indoor smoking room will not be open except for inclement weather days.  Area will be monitored.

Smoking times are as follows

7:00 AM- 12:00 PM

1:00 PM- 8:00 PM

Please understand these changes are not meant to be punitive but rather they are in response to recent violations of our smoking policies and to ensure that we are all safe from potential fire hazards due to noncompliance. Our first priority is resident and staff safety.

For information on the latest water Quality testing please see below:

HEBERT HEALTH CENTER RI2000083
Consumer Confidence Report – 2024
Covering Calendar Year – 2023
This brochure is a snapshot of the quality of the water that we provided last
year. Included are the details about where your water comes from, what it
contains, and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and
state standards. We are committed to providing you with information because
informed customers are our best allies. If you would like to learn more about our
decision-making processes that affect drinking water quality, please call LINDA
WHEELER at 401-231-7016.
Your water comes from:
Source Name Source Water Type
DRILLED WELL #1 (BR) Ground Water
DRILLED WELL #2 (BR) Ground Water
Our water source is two drilled wells consisting of well 1(BR)and well 2(BR).
We take preventative measures to control corrosion within our system by
adjusting for pH. The water throughout our system remains continuously
disinfected via the injection of sodium hypochlorite. Our monitoring program
assures the water we provide is safe to drink.
INSTRUCTIONS: If a source water assessment has been completed, the
PWS must tell customers one is available and where to obtain a copy. If an
assessment was provided or approved by the state, the CCR must also
include a brief summary of the system’s susceptibility to potential sources of
contamination using language provided by the state or written by the
operator.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than
the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as those with
cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some
elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.
EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain
at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants
does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the
EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) included rivers,
lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the
surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in sources water before we treat it include:
Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from
sewage treatment plants, septic systems, livestock operations and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be
naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as
storm water run-off, agriculture, and residential users.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or the result of
mining activity.
Organic contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which
are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and also
come from gas stations, urban storm water run-off, and septic systems.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulation
which limits the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public
water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public
health.
Our water system is required to test a minimum of 1 sample per month in
accordance with the Total Coliform Rule for microbiological contaminants.
Coliform bacteria are usually harmless, but their presence in water can be an
indication of disease-causing bacteria. When coliform bacteria are found,
special follow-up tests are done to determine if harmful bacteria are present in
the water supply. If this limit is exceeded, the water supplier must notify the
public.
Water Quality Data
The following tables list all of the drinking water contaminants which were
detected during the 2023 calendar year. The presence of these contaminants
does not necessarily indicate the water poses a health risk. Unless noted, the
data presented in this table is from the testing done January 1- December 31,

  1. The state requires us to monitor for certain contaminants less than once
    per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to
    vary significantly from year to year. Some of the data, though representative of
    the water quality, is more than one year old. Our water system makes every
    effort to provide you with safe drinking water.
    Terms & Abbreviations
    Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): the “Goal” is the level of a
    contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to
    human health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
    Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): the “Maximum Allowed” MCL is the
    highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as
    close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
    Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level (SMCL): recommended level for a
    contaminant that is not regulated and has no MCL.
    Action Level (AL): the concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded,
    triggers treatment or other requirements.
    Treatment Technique (TT): a required process intended to reduce levels of a
    contaminant in drinking water.
    Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL): the highest level of a
    disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition
    of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
    Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal (MRDLG): the level of a drinking
    water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
    MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
    microbial contaminants.
    Non-Detects (ND): lab analysis indicates that the contaminant is not present.
    Parts per Million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/l)
    Parts per Billion (ppb) or micrograms per liter (μg/l)
    Picocuries per Liter (pCi/L): a measure of the radioactivity in water.
    Millirems per Year (mrem/yr): measure of radiation absorbed by the body.
    Monitoring Period Average (MPA): An average of sample results obtained
    during a defined time frame, common examples of monitoring periods are
    monthly, quarterly and yearly.
    Nephelometric Turbidity Unit (NTU): a measure of the clarity of water.
    Turbidity in excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable to the average person. Turbidity
    is not regulated for groundwater systems.
    Running Annual Average (RAA): an average of sample results obtained over
    the most current 12 months and used to determine compliance with MCLs.
    Locational Running Annual Average (LRAA): Average of sample analytical
    results for samples taken at a particular monitoring location during the previous
    four calendar quarters.

    If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from
    materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Your water system is responsible for providing high quality drinking water but cannot
    control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure
    by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your
    water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline
    or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

    Additional Required Health Effects Language:
    Infants and children are typically more vulnerable to lead in drinking water than the general population. It is possible that lead levels at your home may be higher
    than at other homes in the community as a result of materials used in your home’s plumbing. If you are concerned about elevated lead levels in your home’s water,
    you may wish to have your water tested and flush your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using tap water. Additional information is available from the Safe
    Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
    There are no additional required health effects violation notices.
