Some people don't understand the importance of safety, or the importance of trust placed in them to perform their jobs responsibly. Evidence of this was seen in the recent arrest of a Nanny in San Anselmo, CA who allegedly drove drunk to pick up her employer's children. This occured on the first day of elelementary school.
We often see irresponsible behavoir arising out of alcohol abuse, but this one hits too close to home. Many parents in the Washington and Baltimore region rely on nannies and day care providers to care for their children. We hoped this reported story wasn't true. Unfortunately, it is.
With so many working parents in the Washington and Baltimore region, reliance on good day care providers is a necessity. After all, what is more important than our children. When hiring a person to care for one's child, good background checks, or good references are a necessity, not a luxury.
We have written about the hardships suffered by the victims of drunk drivers. Thank goodness this nanny was arrested before she harmed the children in her care.
If you have any questions about the subject of alcohol and car accidents, or if you've been a victim of a drunk driver, call the lawyers at Clark & Steinhorn. Ask to speak to Robert Clark or Allan Steinhorn. We care, and we will answer your questions.
