OSHA Investigating Marion Nursing Home
Marion Regional Nursing Home sits quietly on Military Street in Hamilton, Alabama. Inside, the atmosphere has been far from peaceful according to a complaint filed with OSHA.
The extended care facility has had reported deaths of both patients and staff members, making the investigation fall into the categoy of "fatal or catastrophic." It's unknown how long the investigation will last or what may be the consequences. A recent inquiry in Georgia resulted in a fine of 6.5K.
Outbreaks of COVID-19 in the area have also been reported at Burns Nursing Home in Russellville and Florence Nursing & Rehab in Florence. Recent spikes in infections have greatly increased the threat that more institutional cases are to follow.
