My husband had surgery last week and has been having visits from District Nurses. The nurse who visited this morning told of a one off visit by a Bogus Nurse. She visited an elderly couple who saw the `uniform` and let her in. She chatted to them, asked questions and while they were answering was looking round the room. She was wearing a striped dress which is not the uniform of Thanet nurses. The couple`s daughter phoned and reported the incident, as the couple had no need of a visit and she was suspicious. I know this incident was local to me, but I feel it will do no harm to make everyone aware. Please make sure you check all identification before you let anyone in. This is particularly worrying for those who live alone. I`m sorry if this notice causes anyone unnecessary worry.
