The woman who cared for Bobbi Kristina Brown during her two-month stay at the Peachtree Christian Hospice center has been arrested for impersonating a nurse.
Taiwo Sobamowo has been charged with identity theft, forgery, and impersonating a nurse after she used another nurse’s license number with a similar name to obtain work.
Via Fox 5 Atlanta:
Senior I-Team Investigative Reporter Dale Russell has learned the Forsyth County Sheriff’s office issued arrest warrants charging Taiwo Sobamowo with identity theft, forgery and impersonating a nurse. Sobamowo was picked up over the weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Monday afternoon, the Duluth Police Department also issued an arrest warrant against Sobamowo, charging her with impersonating a nurse. The hospice where Bobbi Kristina was living at the end of her life – Peachtree Christian Hospice – is located in Duluth. Detectives said more charges are expected.
Sobamowo was employed by Homestead Hospice and Palliative Care, which provides contract nurses for Peachtree Christian. The company told the FOX 5 I-Team they are “shocked and dismayed that she had issues with her licensing.”
The company said Sobamowo was terminated and immediately reported to the State Board of Nursing. Amanda McKissick, Regional Director of Operations said, “We understand that we are not the only hospice that she has gained fraudulent employment with, and we are relieved that she is no longer practicing.”
