MONTGOMERY – Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange today announced the indictment of the former business office manager of a Cullman nursing home on charges that he stole patient funds entrusted to him.
Jeffery Adam Woods, 36, of Cullman was indicted on July 11 by a Cullman County grand jury on one count of theft of property in the first degree, a class C felony. Evidence was presented that he collected approximately $2,000 from the family members and sponsors of the residents of The Folsom Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare nursing home. Woods is alleged to have then kept the money for his personal use, rather than depositing and crediting the money to the residents’ patient trust fund accounts.
Nursing home management discovered the shortage in the patient trust fund and reported the matter to officials at the Alabama Department of Public Health, who forwarded it to the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit for investigation.
Strange thanked the management of Folsom Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare for their diligence in discovering and reporting the theft.
The Cullman Tribune has reached out to The Folsom Center for comment, but none has been provided at this time. We will update this story accordingly if a statement is issued.
The center is located at 401 Arnold Street NE in Cullman.
