It's confirmed. Nadya Suleman, better known as Octo-Mom, has fired her nurses. The nurses were volunteering to help care for her octuplets.
The nurses were volunteer staff, provided by the organization, Angels in Waiting. As Us Magazine reports:
"Yes, it's true. I released AIW," Suleman said in a statement to Us. "It was really bad. That's all I can say. I can't confirm, why, in particular. I will be releasing the details soon."
The nonprofit charity group announced plan to assist Suleman in raising the 14 children during a March 14th taping of the Dr. Phil Show. Suleman's spokesman accused the Angels in waiting group for spying on Nadya, and reporting her actions to child welfare.
Nadya had several confrontation with her nurses. Her attorney, Jeff Czech said relations worsened Sunday when Suleman came to believe that Angels in Waiting founder Linda West-Conforti was allegedly filing a report against her with child welfare officials
Last month, a complaint was filed to the child welfare officials, by the attorney for the Angles in Waiting, against Suleman, seeking an investigation into whether the mother could provide a suitable environment for her 14 children.
"It started out adversarial and never really resolved itself," Czech told The Associated Press. "Nadya felt that she was being judged wrongfully and she didn't need it. All it did was make a difficult situation worse."
Little was released of the complaint,and the attorney of Angels in Waiting refused to comment.
The offer by Angels in Waiting, was to provide 24 hour round-the-clock care, and to be paid for by public donation. Angels in Waiting later scaled back their offer, to only provide training for the nannies. Suleman said the offer was changed cause the group was not receiving any donations.
Nadya will have her nannies trained by the Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center nurses, where the octuplets were born on January 26th. Four of the octuplets are home from the hospital, along with Nadya's six children. She had planned on hiring her own nannies instead, regardless of Angels in Waiting's assistance
An earlier offer was turned down by Suleman, cause the Angels in Waiting would not let her film a reality show. Angels in Waiting are filming a follow up for the Dr. Phil show.
