If you have training resources to make available to her, do so. But in any
case, tell her that her job is on the line: give her a performance review
(it's only fair and (IMO) it's her right) saying that her work is
substandard and unacceptable. She has to bring it up to standards or she
must be let go.

After you do this, if she fails to improve enough, you have a right to fire
her and sleep well at night.
