Prime Management Certification of Operational and Key Personnel

Each nursing home is licensed by the State of Alabama Department of Public Health and each is certified by the US Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Each nursing home Administrator is licensed through the Alabama Board of Nursing Home Administrators.

Each nursing home undergoes an annual survey conducted by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Division of Health Care Facilities to ensure that the facility is in substantial compliance with federal regulations. All Prime homes were inspected during 2008 - 2009, and the results of the survey with the facility answers to deficiencies are posted in each facility for public inspection. Numerous websites also publish nursing home survey results, but normally these websites do not give facility compliance answers to survey findings. Therefore, you are invited to inspect the survey findings with facility answers to each deficiency that is posted in each home. It is important to remember that no licensed nursing home that is out of substantial compliance with the federal standards of practice can continue to operate indefinitely. If a nursing home has major compliance issues, state and federal regulators monitor the home for compliance based on an established time line published in the regulations.
