abuse allegations- licensing question

  1. Hey, my name is russ, im 22, not a nurse my mom is. a few weeks ago my mother a foster parent, was notified of allegations made against her by her own grand children (she has custody because there mother is worthless. she really is.)

    the allegations are false, there caseworkers and counselors basically tricked and threatened them into coming them up with them because they dont like the fact that the kids are with my mom, where there real mother can visit them anytime. i know for a fact they are false i was here when it allegedly happened.

    my mother is a mental wreck right now so were trying to find out for her if the allegations, even unfounded will appear on her license. any help or a point in the right direction would be

    I would suggest contacting a lawyer.

    I think a lawyer is a good idea.

    However, OFTEN (not always) false allegations not infrequently die on the vine for lack of support. There is no doubt that false reporting is every bit as horrendous as failure to report true incidences of abuse in it's own way.

    I used to do CM on tech dependent kids and a foster parent of one of my kids got reported. I was off the case but the current CM and I discussed it. I encouraged her to, as always, say what you know. You cannot address what you don't know. I believe she ultimately made a statement in support of the foster mom and the allegations, due to failure of other corroborating information, went away.

    Submit your own statement of support, too.

    The sad part is that the kids in these situations learn to create dramas (or star in their own soap operas, as I've been known to say) and "truth" becomes so subverted.

    All around tragedy.

    She needs a lawyer. Yes they are expensive but she would be stepping over dollars to pick up pennies by not getting one. The earlier the better,
