Report it to the BAR, Bureau of Automotive Repair, if you are not able to reason with the shop that performed the work.

If you asked specifically for the oil pan to be fixed, and that was not the cause of the oil leak, the shop cannot be held responsible for your diagnoses. Verble approval is needed for additional repairs, make sure that your mom, knows wether she has. Speak to the shop and use the threat of the Bureau of Automotive Repair as a last resort
