The Tennessean had an article about the arrest of Regina Jacobs. The nursing home employee is charged with stealing more than $400,000 from the nursing home where she
worked for more than 10 years. I wonder how long it was going on? How could she be so greedy?
Officers with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested her after she was indicted by the Wilson County grand jury on three counts of theft over $60,000, two counts of theft over $10,000 and one count of theft over $1,000.
In December 2008, the nursing home, Quality Care Health Center, finally discovered that Jacobs, a business office manager, had been cashing checks intended to cover patient costs and keeping the money. An internal investigation and audit at the nursing home revealed that about 70 patients' accounts had been affected.
