A Council Bluffs nursing home is facing an Oct. 4 deadline for complying with state and federal regulations, state officials say.

If Regency Rehab and Skilled Nursing, 1600 McPherson Ave., is not found in substantial compliance during a surprise inspection this fall, it could lose Medicare and Medicaid certification, said David Werning, public information officer for the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals.

    I worked at Regency Rehab and Care center and saw first hand the substandard care. I had to go and purchase with my own money items the residents under my care needed, from toiletries to OTC medications. I worked there when Roxanne Smith was there and she went above and beyond to correct things and to ensure the residents were taken care of correctly. She was asked to leave by Mr. Tippin due to low census. There were many times she had to meet vendors at the back door with a check so that the residents could get the food and items they needed. Phone service was shut off at times, cable was shut off at times. We had to use our personal cell phones to be able to contact doctors and family members. The problem with the facility is all due to the owner and management. Employees are leaving because of what is going on at RRCC. I hope the state and feds do what ever it takes to protect the residents.
