Childminder banned following baby head injury

Posted in: Head and Brain Injuries Personal Injury 

Police are currently investigating an accident whereby a 14-month-old boy was found with severe head injuries at the Edinburgh home of his childminder. Halima Nassif, from Limefield, has had an “emergency condition” placed on her by the Care Inspectorate, which will remain until the police investigation has closed. The boy is currently being treated for his head injuries in hospital.

It is believed by the Care Inspectorate that Halima Nassif had left the baby with a family member while she went out to work at another job. The family member was not a registered childminder. A letter from the Care Inspectorate to Halima Nassif said that the family member was not fit to provide the service of childcare under regulation 6 of The Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland Regulations 2011.

‘Left to pursue other employment’

The letter continued: “During your absence from your child minding service and whilst in the sole care of your unregistered family member, the minded child sustained a head injury … The Care Inspectorate has reason to believe you left the minded child in order to pursue other employment which, on occasion, takes place during the hours of operation of your child minding service.

The Care Inspectorate has placed an emergency condition on Mrs Nassif’s childminder registration, meaning that she is unable to childmind until the investigation has reached a conclusion. Mrs Nassif, however, has decided to cancel her registration entirely.
