The federal government and the state of Alabama routinely monitor every nursing facility to identify serious violations of established rules and regulations and levy monetary fines or deny payments through Medicare when problems are found. Typically, these violations result in penalties when investigators find severe problems that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
The nursing home received one complaint over the last thirty-six months that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive Alabama Adult Protective Services Website.

The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) did not store her gloves in her pocket and also failed to ensure a CNA washed her hands and changed her gloves while providing incontinent care for [a resident].”
The investigation involved a resident whose medical records indicated “they require two-person extensive assistance with toileting.” The resident was observed, “in a Geri-chair in the dining room on July 20, 2016, from 8:00 AM until 11:10 AM.”
At 11:10 AM, two CNAs provided incontinence care for a resident. One CNA “washed her hands, removed the chair alarm from the resident’s chair while [the other CNA] washed her hands and applied gloves” before transferring the resident to bed. However, the second CNA, “removed the resident’s clothes and turned off the air conditioning unit, still wearing the same gloves.”
That CNA continued to retrieve the brief/pad, then removed her gloves and placed them in the trash bag at the end of the bed. Without washing or sanitizing her hands, the CNA “reached into her left scrub/uniform pocket, removed the second pair of gloves and put them on” before providing additional care to the resident.
The facility “failed to ensure a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) did not deliver trays to residents on the rehab unit without washing or sanitizing her hands between residents.” The surveyors observed this on September 4, 2018, on one of three units.
Additionally, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “did not remove her gloves from her uniform pocket to administer [one resident’s medication] breathing treatment and did not place the vial of medication in her name tag pouch while preparing [the resident] and the nebulizer machine.” This failure was observed on September 5, 2018.
