Unregistered nanny fined $800 in Qld court

AAP logoAAP 17/10/2016

A woman has been fined $800 for working as an unregistered nanny after twin babies in her care spent time in a coma at a Brisbane hospital.

Daniella Terese Rooney, 41, pleaded guilty to carrying on unregulated business and for not having the required 'blue card' in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.

The twins were rushed to Brisbane's Lady Cilento Hospital last month after their mother was unable to wake them for a night feed.

They ended up spending 20 hours in a coma.

It's understood the couple hired Rooney through an online parenting group, wrongly believing she was registered.
