"do not rehire" list?

Long story short I worked for a nursing home as as CNA when I was in college. I gave the ADON my availability which consisted of 6 different shifts throughout the week. I was part time so I had to work 3 shifts a week. I even indicated on my availability that I am open these 6 so pick any 3. The ADON scheduled me for all 6 shifts every week for the next few months. I even clarified with her that this is not what I meant but she said it's already in so I had to find coverage. This was 6 years ago and I now know how I should have handled it but instead I got coverage when I could, called off when I couldn't work and I found a new job. I could not get a hold of my DON so I told her over voicemail and then put my 2 weeks letter on her desk. Again, I know what I should have done differently.

Anyway, that nursing home has since been bought by a larger system. I've applied to about 5 jobs since with no call back. I want to believe that it's because they are highly sought after roles and I meet the minimum qualifications but each time I applied, I had to indicate that I had previously worked for the health system that was bought out. I'm worried that I was put on a "do not rehire" list or that the new system sees that I would call in a lot or even worse, made it look like I was fired. Is there any way I would be able to know for sure?

The only way to know for sure is to ask an HR person at the facility.
