Baby Nurse - False Identity

Received Tuesday, December 19, 2006
I recently hired a baby nurse through Absolute Best Care agency to help me care for my newborn baby for three weeks. I was assigned to a Jamaican woman named Monica (last name available). When she arrived on the day we came home from the hospital, everything seemed fine. After the first week I started to question whether she was as experienced as her resume indicated... By the end of the second week, I began to question whether she really fit the description given to me by the agency...Midway through the third week I became suspicious that she was actually not Monica (-) at all...Finally, I confronted her and she broke down crying with regret for what she had done... I asked to see her identification - and she was a completely different woman. The real Monica (-) had sent this woman in her place as "a favor for a friend in need of the money" (and charged the gal a small fee for the favor). While the woman caring for our son was pleasant and loving, she had never actually worked as a baby nurse before (she had no green card or authorization to work in the U.S. / her passport indicated that her occupation was a "dressmaker"). We were horrified - an imposter had been in our home for eighteen days impersonating a baby nurse sent to us by a reputable agency. We sent her home immediately and paid her a portion of what we owed her in cash. We are grateful that nothing happened to our child, however, we hope that the real Monica (-) is never placed by an agency again. While Absolute Best Care waved our placement fee, they never refunded us the cash.

I am terribly sorry, but if you allow a stranger to come into your home and even go near your NEWBORN child....... without verifying some kind of photo identification... jeez, any lady could have walked onto your doorstep claiming to be this "Monica" lady and easily either stolen your baby or worse... Oh wait a minute, i guess "any" lady claiming to be Monica did!!!!!

... I'm sorry but there's either got to be more to this story that you're not telling us, or you are just plain not playing with a full deck of cards. Again, i am sorry because i hate being so harsh on people.. but this post really upset me because it could have been so easily avoided if common sense was in there somewhere... a NEWBORN baby?!?!?!?!? Jeez.

I am glad that your baby is ok.

If you hired someone from a reputable agency and they showed up at your door the time/day they are supposed to and introduce themselves as the name of the person you hired, you probably wouldnt' ask for their ID!
The original poster is a normal, caring mom who had a horrible thing happen to her (which we all agree could have been way worse). But honestly, this is a warning, take it as that, and leave the harsh judgements out. It would be important to know what city the agency is out of (NYC?) so that no one uses them.

I really think that you need to contact the authorities and the media about this. The agency needs to take more responsibility.

Anonymous said...

what a bitchy response from the first person. when a baby nurse comes to take care of your child, why would you ever ask for Id? It isn't like you need to make a copy of her Drivers liscence for insurance.

What a crappy thing to happen to someone.

Don't forget people, baby nurses aren't allowed to call themselves baby nurses anymore unless they are REAL nurses. They got away with that crap for way too long!

Anonymous said...

When you ask for a baby nurse to come and the agency says they have someone named "Monica" coming in, you wouldn't be suspicious if a woman at the door says she's "Monica". The first thing that comes to your mind is, so...the baby nurse they sent me has come! Not, is she an imposter? The first poster is unnecessarily harsh and lacks empathy and perspective.

I hope the real Monica will never find work in this profession again. If my husband, a doctor, allowed someone else to pretend to be him and treat his patients, he would be locked up in jail.

Just goes to show, you can never be too sure about anyone who says they are a nanny.

Agencies are not 100% reliable.

Even though you pay a large placement fee to a nanny placment agency, when it comes down to it, verifing references is the responsibility of the parents.

And yes, I would ask to see a driver's license, as well as any other certificates- i.e. CPR/1st Aid.

Even though an agency says they have checked references-
you, as a parent, should call each and every one of them as well.

Double check everything the agency is telling you is true.

I have heard too many horror stories- nannies saying they have driver's lic. and do not....
agencies saying the nanny does not smoke, and she does....etc. etc....

You can never be too safe when it comes to the safety of your children's care.

Remember most agencies are just looking for their placement fee-
not surprised to hear you did not get all your money back.

Look at the Coldwater Canyon post below! The person in question is named MONICA. And would have been starting a job around the timeframe this mother got her from the agency. And it said she had a nursing degree! Where did this post occur? Same area? Or should we all stop employing "Monicas"?

Also, the Agency should fire the real Monica! I hope they have. And couldn't the fake Monica be arrested?

And why in god's name would the parents pay the imposter ANYTHING?!! In cash no less! This was fraud, and dangerous at that. Tell her you are calling the cops and get her the hell out! Then call the Better Business Bureau on the Agency. They may have to start doing spot checks on their placements to make sure it is still the same nurse they sent out.
Nobody would touch my child without ID. Why is that so hard?

Anonymous said...

sorry but I have to agree that she should have asked for identification. As a preschool teacher, whenever anyone visits the classroom and especially is authorized to pick up a child, you always check the I.D.

Anonymous said...

to the stupid people who posted above saying no one touches their child without id, i wish i could reach out and slap you! I have used babysitting services and nanny agencies at upscale resorts, it never crosses my mind to demand ID when someone shows up at my door! for you to even suggest that the parent is at fault here is ludicrous. let the fault lie where it should with the criminal conduct of the "baby nurse". Both the real monica and not the fake!

Incredulous JT said...

to 2:25:
So you take no responsibility for who cares for your child, then? Just leave it up to other bureaucratic, for-profit agencies? Hope for the best and kiss it up to God?
Adults take the best care they can, then if someone manages to con us we use the police agencies available to punish the criminals. Monica and the fake Monica should both be arrested for fraud and endangerment of the infant. And I suspect the fake Monica is illegal, so she would be deported. Anyone who you do not know who shows up at your door to care for your child should show you their ID. If Agencies know this will happen every time, and their placements know this will happen, then perhaps they won't be so ready to take money from illegals as a fee and perpetrate fraud.
The agency that hired Monica probably vetted her out, but obviously it doesn't mean anything when their nanny is crooked, greedy and immoral and she sent someone else in her place. THAT's why you ask for ID.

Anonymous said...

How scary. I think the agency is not taking enough of the blame. I can't believe they took money from you after what happened. I would tell them that you will go to the police & media with this story unless they refund you the money you payed to them & the fake Monica.
I'm glad to hear your baby is ok.

Anonymous said...

in upscale neighborhoods, no one is iding the baby nurse that comes through the door. I mean before I heard of this story, who knew? Get off your impractical high horse.

Anonymous said...

Above poster-
you mean to say- you'd just let anyone into your home without checking their ID???

Many nanny placement agencies don't even met the nannies they send out before hand.
And many lie about the nannies qualifications.

The parents are the employers- it's up to them to interview and do a background check on their "employee".

Parents, please take the time to research and learn how to properly screen and interview a nanny to be certain she is qualifed. Always double check the info. the agency gives you- and ask to see origionals of any green cards, driver's lic. or certifications.

I would hope, at bear minimum, the parents would have a copy of the nannies driver's license on hand in case anything went wrong.

If the nanny is on the up and up- she will have no problem showing you her creditionals.

Anonymous said...

a baby nurse isn't the same thing. She arrives at your house to stay. She is basically your prisoner for the duration of her stay, so why would you ask for ID. Idiot, of course you would just assume that she is the person that the agency told you all about. I hate you. I hate you and your stupid asshole assumptions. We are parents. We aren't supposed to have to defend our children and homes and every front. Something needs to be safe. You think like a criminal, so I am guessing you are some bone thug. Rot in hell.

I don't think anyone is suggesting that the agency or the baby nurse is not at fault. What they are suggesting is that parents do indeed have the responsibility to make sure they know who is taking care of their child and to not assume anything when it comes to their child.
Are you the same poster who made the comment about "upscale resorts" etc? If so, do you realize how you sound? You not only sound like a horrible parent, you sound like a horrible person who because she is well-off doesn't feel that she needs to take responsibility for anything, even the children who should be the most precious thing to you.
I feel so bad for your kids. Not to be mean, but I really do...

Communicate on what level?
WHO are you talking to?

Anonymous said...

I am a nanny and i have been hired by parents who never taught about asking for my ID. Which is weird, why would you trust your baby or kids with someone, that you don,t know about.My current employer asked me for ID about a week after they hired me, even though i had spent a week in thier home without them being around, with just me and the baby, anything could of happen, I asked them why they took a week they said they were so busy they forgot to asked, so i gave them my ID, plus my mailing address and home phone number. So parents when you hire someone please ask for ID, mailing adress, contact numbers, reference etc.Do your own home work instead of depending on other people, like the agency to do it for you.

LISTEN UP, IDIOTS. A BABY NURSE IS NOT THE SAME AS A NANNY. WHEN YOU HIRE A NANNY THROUGH AND AGENCY YOU SEE ALL OF HER PAPERWORK AND BACKGROUND AND IF YOU ARE ANY KIND OF PERSON, YOU REQUIRE THAT YOUR NANNY HAS TO HAVE CPR AND FIRST AID AND HAS TO DRIVE SO YOU WOULD HAVE A COPY OF HER DL. A BABY NURSE SENT FOR THREE WEEKS UNFORTUNATELY IS MORE LIKE CALLING UP A SITTER SERVICE. FOR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY YOU GET GOUGED (BECAUSE SHE IS NO KIND OF REAL NURSE) YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO THINK GOING THROUGH A REPUTABLE AGENCY MEANS THE PERSON YOU HAVE SPOKEN TO ON THE PHONE AND THE PERSON WHOSE PAPERWORK YOU HAVE SEEN IS GOING TO BE THE PERSON WHO SHOWS UP.

I AM SICK AND TIRED OF YOU NANNIES COMING ON THIS BOARD AND FINDING A WAY TO TURN EVERYTHING AROUND. WHETHER DEFENDING SOME PUNK NANNY OR SOMEHOW BLAMING THE PARENT FOR THE PROBLEM.

THE RESPONSE OF NANNIES ON THIS BOARD MAKES ME CERTAIN THAT THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL, I WILL EVER EMPLOY SUCH A PIGHEADED PIECE OF SHIT IN MY EMPLOYMENT. NO OFFENSE.

When i go for a job interview I will show my id even if a parent doesnt ask for it. Reason below.
I responded to a post to someone who was looking for a nanny, I called and she asked for my references, so I gave them. she told me she will check and call me back in a few days. a few days later one of my references called me asking about my NEW job, I was what new job. she said someone called and was gonna hire me and was checking my reference. anyway, she gave me the ladys number and she said she hired me, so I asked her what she looked like knowing it wasnt me. anyway, I told her the person is a phoney. anyway, when the phoney came to work, she asked her if she had id because her husband asked her too ask her for it. she said no, but she said she can go home and get it, so she left and never came back...so now when I call about a job, I refuse to give my references unless I meet the parent first.

Anonymous said...

Well here is my 2 cents.

The agency did their job. thats it after they place the person they don't do anything unless it dosen't work out then they will sent a replacement or give refund ( but I would say that is less likely)

I monica person is the one in the wrong and so was the imposer. People will do anything when they are hirting for money.

For all the parents. Now you know that you should check ID's. make she you call refances and ask agency to profide you with picture of the person you are hiring this way you know what they look like.

Give me f'n break poster 955...You are so lame!! A baby nurse provides care for newborns,same as ananny and while technically you may be correct..they do the same thing with a difference of logistics!! The parent in this case WAS absolutley to blame!! Being a parent is a big job..that includes knowing who you let in your home and who you let touch your child! Any parent that allows a stranger in their home with a child/infant with out checking to make sure that they are who they sat they are is an imbecile!!

THEY WERE COMPLETLEY AT FAULT! SUCK IT UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY!!!!!I would be embarassed to tell their story..not to mention the questioning I would get from family & freinds about not checking things out for myself!! Babies are precious gifts..the OP needs to start treating hers like one! And as for you not hiring a nanny..wow big loss for them!!

Anonymous said...

To poster 225..are you kidding me with this!!! YOU NEED TO LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PARENT! IT MEANS being responsible. I have friends that I childcare swap with and I trust them but you had better believe that I have their address,phone # and license plate # all written down because if my child ever came up missing I would not want to look like a dumb ass as the OP does right now!! How could you let someone so close to your baby like that with out varifying the info that an agency gave you!! So stupid!! If I were a slaesman in your area I'd be stinkin' rich "well gee..if they said it..it MUST be true..no need ta check" DUMBASS!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Anyone who agrees w/the original poster NOT being at fault..should have their children taken away!! Stupid lazy parents!! Let's pay someone else to take care of the kid!! Doesn't matter who..we'll let someone else choose just as long as they send them by 8 so we can get back to what we want to do!!!!It'll probably be fine!!

Anonymous said...

This problem has to do with greedy-money hungry nannies, babynurses and nanny agencies. Not parents who trust that by calling a reputable agency, everything would be handled just fine. After reading this, of course now I think I would think to verify the sitter who shows up is the same on I hired by phone. I wouldn't have known this before. Nor would I pretend to. And again, above poster is right- the nannies swarm on every post and attack the parents. It is sickening! These are the very same parents that keep you ensconced in gap clothing and fake logo bags.

Anonymous said...

Wait a minute..how is it that the AGENCY is at fault???????? I am a baby nurse. I go to the most reputable agency in town. I am trustlined, have CPR &1st aid training and a long list of wonderful references dating back 6-8 yrs and all credentials. I am an A#1 baby nurse. The agency finds a job..I am to start in a week. I decide to let my sister go in my place as she is down & out and badly in need of a job.

This has NOTHING to do w/the agency.Even if they were to call and varify that I am doing my job..the parent could go on and on about me and yet the conversation is actually about 2 different people!!

Does it still seem to you that the agency is at fault??

HEll NO!! It seems to me that mom and dad need to get their heads out of their asses and check refrences & ID"S!!

The agency did everything right..mom & dad did everything wrong!!

Signed..a nanny pissed at lazy parents who don't do their job and the idiots that praise them!!!!!!

Poster 11:35 You are probably the dumbass that let someone in your house with out checking to make sure that they really were who they said they were!!! Blame everyone else!!!!! Lazy ass..do your job!!

Anonymous said...

Right. Because the parents are always at fault. Let me guess- when a police office approaches you, you ask for his ID and then take the time to call in the badge # to verify it isn't phony. You suck. The problem isn't with the parents it is with the derelicts and criminals posing as childcare providers. And guess what- go ahead and check the ID. Have you seen some greencard photos? It could be anyone. Not too mention that it could have been a fake person from the get go and because she isn't from this country you wouldn't be able to run a criminal background check. So the moral of this story is that there must be a long around the block of nannies ready to committ fraud, rob, sleep with your husbands and steal your children and behind them will be a bevy of fat ass nannies with picket signings crying out "don't blame the nanny. Blame the parent".

Put down the pork rinds. Step away from the Haagen Daz. Take a run and clear your bloated, ignorant heads.

Oh right. This must be the fault of a WOHM. Of course. Why didn't I see this coming. All women who want to have children better stay home and raise them from age 1 day to age 18.

Really, women need not waste their time with such stupid things as medical school, universities or law school. They should not dally in the arts or dream of effecting social change with the work they do in the justice system.

No they are not allowed to do anything but have children. And if they choose to work, then they are not allowed to have children.

And just writing this shaved ten points off my IQ. I can't believe I allowed one idiot to rile me up!

I am not the original poster.
I am someone who used a baby nurse after the birth of both of my children. The first for one month, the second for six weeks. I never thought to ask for ID from the baby nurse. I had all of her certificates and resume and references. They were glowing. She showed up and she was wonderful. I am guessing she was the actual person on the resume. My point is that I would never have thought to ask for ID. Since you speak to the person on the phone and give them directions or send a car service for them; why would you think the person who arrived at 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon was anyone else than who you invited?

I agree that times are changing and we should all be more careful. I do not agree that the person who posted this was dumb or negligent in anyway! She made a very valid point for all of us (at her expense) and I thank her for that!

Perhaps I am naive in assuming the above posters are all women so bear with me. Is this really what we as women have come to? In reading these posts, the complete lack of regard for the topic and the pervasive use of name calling and profanity renders your posts childish and simple minded. No wonder in this day and age people still refuse to believe a woman is capable of running this country. After reading these posts, I too am beginning to fear the day a woman may be sitting in the Oval office. This is how we treat each other? This is how we respond to other women's opinions? "Bitch" Dumbass"? How sad that this long after Junior High, women still attempt to uplift themselves by tearing someone else down.

SO TAKE NOTE: YOU'VE BEEN FORWARDED OF WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF YOU DON'T CHECK ID'S. AND SO NANNIES DON'T JUMP DOWN MY THROAT, GO AHEAD. DO YOUR OWN INVESTIGATING ABOUT POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS.

One thing that mothers should also keep in mind is to TRUST your instincts. The mom knew something was up in the first week, she should have been more assertive. Thank GOD nothing happened to the baby. The agency NEEDS to be held responsible and sued, then they can turn around and place blame on the real "Monica". She should never be allowed to work again because she put so many lives in jeopardy, including the young woman she duped into posing as a nurse.

Anonymous said...

It's sad to hear all of this. It's whole heartedly the parent'a fault, because she didn't check any ID. I'm sure that the "imposter" would have caused or didn't cause any harm to the infant.

I want someone to answer me this; since when does someone need a certicficate to know how to take care of babies and children. The people who employ babynurses and nannies have to understand it's a communal effort to raise children. It shouldn't be left up to the nanny or the babynurses alone to raise your children, they're human to. The reality of it is this woman wanted someone to come to her home and take complete control of her newborn's first couple of weeks of life. Do not leave it up to the nanny alone, and some things that are happening can surely be prevented.

And since when does having a green card denotes the quality of work. I know plenty of people without greencards that take better care of children than people without greencards. And if these nannies that are without greencards are deported, exactly who would be taking care of your precious? Certainly not African Americans. They are done with being house slaves, because when you think about this whole thing, it's just modern day slavery.

you are so redundant in your posts.
I just read through this thread and you are the same person who posted this sentiment 50 times or more. And by the way it is shirk- not shurk.

It is completely uncommon to demand ids from babynurses who show up. Well it was, hopefully this post changes that!

And for all of you who hire baby nurses, please take the time to comprehend the skills the baby nurse actually has. They are in most instances less educated than a nursing assistant. They have a certification for a baby nurse class that costs $50. And they are not allowed to call themselves baby nurses. For the money that some of the agencies were asking, I decided to hire an LPN from a Connecticut Hospital to work nights for us during the first 8 weeks. She was worth every penny.

Anonymous said...

well,I may seem redundant but I have never let a stranger in my home without seeing ID! I also took care of both my children without the help of an outsider!Don't quite understand women allowing a baby nurse to feed their kids at night...what an absolute fantastic experience to miss out on!

It is nice that you are educated enough to correct someone's grammar but a shame you ae unable to tend to your own child at night!Paying someone whils you go to work is understandable paying a "baby nurse" to do your job is very sad .

Lovely. Someone so removed from the circle of those who employ baby nurses and yet she is attacking a woman for not demanding ID. As if that is how it is done.

You are absolutley right..a baby nurse is a luxury..I am shocked that any mommy would consider letting someone else(an admitted perfect stranger and fraud infact in said particular case) bond with her child a luxury!Children are a gift and the fact that you would give that time to someone else is appalling to me. It has nothing to do with money..you obviously have no idea what you are missing when that little 2 week old face stares at you while eating at 1 am!!! You are the kind of parent who really could care less that you are missing out on those things though because after all you need to get a full nights sleep so you will be ready for your $80.00 manicure and $120.00 haircut tomorrow. You choose to be a part time, when it is convenient for YOU parent..don't rag on those of us that choose to be there all the time!Again ,I am not talking about employing a nanny while working!

I am from Ca. I have a fairly large circle of friends..we often get together with our friends and friends of our friends..we see a lot..I am not sure where all the above poster are from but let me tell you..we live in a fairly affluent area..we spank our children..employ nannies and would never allow an agency to send someone into our home without asking that a photo ID accompany the paperwok from the agency.

A baby nusre or doula would have been very affordable for us..this is not a jealousy issue...

So,we here in Ca. want to know where is it,what state do people have such low standards and so much money that they would not ask for a photo ID from either the agency or employee herself? Please do tell.

Of course the baby nurse showed ID. Just like a 19 year old who uses her cousins ID to buy alcohol. The baby nurse was a scam artist a fraud. Why are you trying to put this on the parent?

You are the same person in all of these posts. You don't have money. You arne't affluent. You wouldn't know a doula if she took a crap on your head. You are just horribly angry and bitter.

You likely don't have any circle of friends. That is why you post back on her every three minutes.

Oh and also, I would like to know where in the world I would chance upon and educated and upscale person who spanked their child? That is sooooooooo horrfically low brown and unevolved.

Thanks for your comments. As the OP, I hope some moms out there learned from my mistake. Ask to see your baby nurse's ID even if you hired through a reputable agency. BTW, I am a mother of four who needed a little extra help...not sleep, since I'm nursing exclusively. A baby nurse is a unique situation - but now we all know that they should be treated like any other child care provider...with caution.

All agencies should require nannies or baby nurses to present ID's and encourage parents to check for them. Doesn't sound like an honest agency... they should refund you the money and hope they don't get sued.

I just have to say, that as a professional nanny, I think you mothers are out of control. First off, professional nannies do not defend those bad nannies who are making mockery out of our jobs, rather, we'd like to see them fired just as much as you would. Second, in no way to do dis stay at home moms, moms who work from home, or those employing nannies. I have learned from exeperience and I can tell you that other nannies have as well, that no matter how much money you have, or don't have, at the end of the day it is about how much time and attention you give your children. How much love you show them and who they grow up to be. Whether you spank your child or don't, whether you employ services or don't, the only thing that matters is the children. As a nanny, I would also caution about hiring anyone without proper background checks, ids, and references. Ask the right questions, get the right results, ask the wrong ones or non at all, then don't blame anybody but yourself. I would never work for a family that didn't want to check me out extensivly, after all, I'm living in your home, and taking care of what is your most treasured gift from God. Professional nannies are always around, always looking for good jobs, and looking for good families, those who treat us with respect. I refuse to work for a family that does not respect me and my experience and education. That being said, I do feel extremely bad to the mother who posted this originally, you are feeling the fears every first time parents feels, plus a horrible babynurse on top of that, choose to learn from this lesson and move on, your baby will never remember this and in the future, when hiring any childcare, please check references and double check them. And to those mothers on here who are bad mouthing each other, seriously high school was years ago, don't try to relive it again.

Anonymous said...

This is a frightening story. I hope the OP doesn't feel she was at fault - although, we can all learn a lesson from this and be more careful in the future about checking IDs. Luckily, this is not the norm. The real Monica should be banned from ever working again as a babynurse and the agency should be reported to the BBB.

As a mother who has employed a baby nurse 2/out of the three times- I can honestly say after speaking by phone to the agency at length and speaking to the baby nurse by phone; the last thing I thought to do was card the woman who showed up at my door in a nursing whites at the designated time. I don't plan to have any children in the future, but this is a great warning for anyone who uses a babynurse!

As a long time nanny I have to say, it is very rare that parents hiring a nanny or baby nurse through an agency ask for I. D. OP, you were doing what most parents do. This should be a warning for those hiring in the future. Maybe agencies should forward a copy of the employee's photo I.D. before the interview.

I signed up to and completed a fairly intense application & screening process to do evening and weekend babysitting. The pay was $15 an hour cash in my pocket at the minimum-more for more children. Not that I am proud of it, but there were times I booked gigs and had better (social) plans come along. Rather than lose future bookings, I sent a friend to pose as me. Most of the time I went to upscale hotels, so there was no risk of getting caught. The friend I sent in my place were good people. They didn't have the same skills and references I had, but they did have some experience with children. So if you think this case is rare, think again. I was never id'd ever. Nor were either of my friends showing up in my place.

I never understood how there could be a postion of "baby nurse" They are not nurses, but I bet the agency charges what an actual nurse would cost.
AS far responsibility, I am not at all comfortable at how it was handled. The mom discoved the "baby nurse" was a fraud, paid her CASH, then let her walk away?
I probably wouldn't have asked for ID. I have never been asked for ID, and infact have never had references called (ever, even once) as a nanny or a child care provider out of my home. I would happliy show it if asked, but never have been.
I do think the OP made a huge mistake lettin the woman walk. What about other families? She needed to hold the agency reponsible. Too bad!

This story cannot possibly make sense to someone to whom the whole concept of a baby nurse is foreign. So let me clue you in. When you have someone come in your house to take care of your children and it doesn't work out-for whatever reason, you do whatever you need to to get them out of the house fast. Didn't you see the Hand that Rocks the Cradle?
The last nanny I had to fire, I over compensated just because. All I wanted was her out and away from my children!

I really felt the need to post, I've been reading this blog group for awhile now, and being an owner of a reputable nanny agency in California I would like to give both nanny, and family advice.

If the nanny agency is reputable, they should be sending you out what we call a welcome packet. Each nanny should have her Driver's license picture and Social Security card on hand with the agency, which in turn goes to the family before the hired help is admitted into the home.
Also, some of the agencies have an actual full size picture of their nanny, at least we do: You should ALWAYS interview before they begin employment:

And for the nannies. A lot of you think agencies are tough on you, because of the paperwork, and our high demands. But turn it around. If these were your precious children, would you expect any less?

International nannies association is the best website to find a "licensed, reputable agency" You can also contact them regarding the service you had gotten with a nanny agency, good or bad, and they will be marked down and not allowed into this association.

I hope this helps ;)

to all who wish to shift blame onto the exhausted parents of a newborn who relies on a "reputable" agency to provide them with a legit baby nurse/nanny... when you go to the hospital for surgery, do you get a photo id of the anesthesiologist? or do you trust that the hospital ran background checks and that the man/woman injecting the medication is in fact who he/she says he is? would it bother you at all if later you discovered that the person who performed your epidural was the friend of the anesthesiologist and had no medical training at all?

Anesthesiologist?
I would be pissed if my gardener was using a fake identity and he only handles my gladiolas.

Rogue nannies need to be incarcerated. And people using fake identities- illegals- need to be shipped back to their country and micro chipped so they can never return to the US without setting off an annoying beep.

Until we clean house, it is too hard to keep track of ALL OF THE ILLEGALS.

I am a Newborn Specialist for a long time and the people I worked for never asked for ID, however, I have registered with a few agencies and they requested ID so now I am wondering what happened to the copy of the ID. My belief was that the purpose was that they would keep a copy and pass on the copy to the employers so that they could see what the prospective Newborn Specialist looks like, but I guess not. I was told that they need it to do background checks.

Everyone in this unfavorable event must take blame and sad to say that Monica should not have sent another person without the agency knowing, but she did it for a fee from the fake Monica even if she said she was struggling for money. It is not the usual thing for parent to ask for ID but as this has happened and probably is still happening I believe that parents should demand ID. Work permit is not so much of an issue because there are so many jobs that Americans don't want to attempt you will find that a person without a work permit will do in a hurry.
Nevertheless, taking care of a child almost round the clock is so tiring and tedious and most mothers are too ill and are in too much pain to do it all by themselves and then the fathers have to go to work and no matter what they need the help, it doesn't have to be round the clock. Sometimes some family member may opt to help but after two or three days they get tired.

With all said and done I believe that if people want to Hire Newborn Specialist it should be for a short period just so that they can recuperate from delivery but some want six months to a year I believe that is time for other considerations.

Even though I am a Newborn Specialist I look at people who can't afford this kind of help and they get up at nights and take care of their children and sometimes I think that others can do the same but sleep is a luxury to many.
Please do not blame Specialists for charging a lot because they are the ones who are going for weeks without sleep, it is well worth the money but if you don't have the finance, don't pretend and follow your friends and hire that kind of help. You just have to learn that there are changes to be made in your household and that would mean less sleep and more work. if you can afford it and it is your choice, why not enjoy it?

As a Newborn Specialist I would like to extend my regards to the family who hired the person who posed as Monica, although I believe that Monica would not have sent anyone who would be dangerous, or intended to harm someone else's baby, she wanted to help this person in a financial way but took the wrong step out of greed. I am happy that you worked with your instinct.

I would like to advise all parents who are requesting help from agencies to do some research for your selves, although it is unfair to know that you are paying for the service, or you can have the agency send you a copy of the report on background checks and name and numbers of references, along with photo ID of the person who is expected to come into your home. I believe the background check may be difficult if the person does not have a work permit, but there are ways to find out about criminal records. Check with the local Police. The next thing is that when there is a call for urgent help it is difficult to get these things done. Nevertheless please use wise judgment.

cali mom said...

Have to catch up on this one too, but I'm with those who say that anyone who'd let a stranger walk right in and be alone with their newborn infant based solely on the word of a third party that everything should be fine is so stupid they should probably not have children. Also that the agency can not reasonably be held responsible. Do most agencies personally come to the house and do a visual check to make sure the person they sent to fill the position is the same person who showed up to do the job? And we don't frink the Maytag man or the UPS driver because...DUH, we are not leaving them alone with our newborn infant for 8 hours or more at a time. Would you even leave the room with the Maytag guy and your newborn baby there?

And I am just greatly amused here at how so many people are declaring themselves smart and educated, and the rest of the world ignorant dumbasses, yet practically every single post is written by someone confused over where/were/wear/ware, there/their/they're, sight/site, your/you're, an/and, etc etc etc. Even the ones bragging about how rich they are.

Am I understanding this? A "Nanny" is a trained and documented, experienced person and a "Baby Nurse" is little more than a babysitter hired off the streets? Lets not forget that NURSE is a professional title that nobody should be using unless they have gone through a rigorous and thorough education and passed the licensing exam. Last I checked, a high school dropout could be a flipping nanny.

These "agencies" should be much more concerned about sending out people with the title NURSE when clearing they are nothing of the sort, then making sure a NANNY is who she says she is.
