When will she be able to rest in peace? Six months after she was found face down in her bathtub, Bobbi Kristina ever regained consciousness and died. And now the woman who took care of her in her last days at a hospice is arrested, in police custody for pretending to be a nurse.
There’s no indication in a police report obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday that Brown’s care was affected by Taiwo Sobamowo, the nurse in charge of caring for the 22-year-old at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth.
Police said Sobamowo, 32, was impersonating a licensed nurse with a similar name and faces charges that include identity fraud and nursing without a license.
In a statement, Homestead Hospice CEO Mallie Sharafat said the company performed a background check and reviewed references from other health care agencies in the area. The company contracts with the hospice to provide care employees.
“We had no reason to believe that she was anything other than a good nurse with proper credentials,” Sharafat wrote. “As soon as the credentialing discrepancy was discovered by one of our employees, we immediately took action and notified the appropriate authorities.”
