Accused Phony Nurse In Atlanta Hospice Has History Of Trouble
A 32-year-old woman — who authorities said impersonated a nurse at the Atlanta hospice Bobbi Kristina Brown died at — had been previously accused of a similar caper two years back.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Taiwo Sobamowo was employed as a nurse at the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Ga., where Bobbi Kristina died July 26 at 22 after a six-month fight for her life.
She was arrested on Sunday in connection with forgery, identity fraud and nursing without a license for her time at the Peach State facility. In the wake of her arrest, new information has been uncovered about Sobamowo's past.
A warning from the District of Columbia Board of Nursing issued in October 2013 indicated that she had worked as a nurse at a Washington hospice under a different person's license.
That red flag set off another trigger, after the National Council of State Boards of Nursing noted that in Minnesota, a routine background check uncovered an outstanding warrant and past convictions.
Then, according to the DC Department of Health, a judge in the nation's capital issued an arrest warrant for Sobamowo in connection with nursing without a license.
Despite the pileup of on-the-record incidents, Sobamowo still wound up getting a gig at the Atlanta-area facility, where she cared for the ailing daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston in the weeks leading to her death. (Sobamowo's work had no impact on Bobbi Kristina's health, according to a police report.)
Sobamowo was expected to appear in court in Georgia Thursday in connection with the charges.
