As a single-parent myself, we often rely on the advice and recommendations of others when it comes to finding quality child-care. Recently, a parents’ worst-nightmare was realized when their 3-month old died while under the care of a Chicago-land babysitter. The parents had relied upon a nanny screening service to perform a background check and hire the babysitter. The parents have recently filed a wrongful death suit against not only the babysitter but the nanny screening service as well. The service’s alleged failure to perform an adequate background check led to the parents’ hiring of a babysitter who had previously used an alias, had a DUI conviction, and at least two other legal run-ins.
