A thread I started on this topic has been closed and I respectfully reques, given the circumstances as discussed in the Mirror article
and the demands of the family and their spokesman for answers, it be allowed to continue. This is not a case of revelling in all the gory details
The family’s spokesman, Labour MP Keith Vaz, said they were demanding answers from the hospital about the circumstances that led to her death.
Bosses at the hospital in Marylebone have said they will conduct internal inquiries, but Mr Vaz said the nurse’s family – including husband Ben, and children Junal, 17, and Lisha, 14 – “want to know everything”.
The husband of royal hoax nurse Jacintha Saldanha had to call the hospital where she worked to find out about her death, a friend said yesterday.
Ben Barboza phoned up after Jacintha, who is thought to have hanged herself, failed to return to their home in Bristol on Friday.
Ivan D’Souza, 47, who lives next door to Jacintha’s family in Mangalore, India, said she was about two hours late when Ben called the King Edward VII Hospital in London.
Mr D’Souza claims it was at this point he discovered Jacintha, 46, had killed herself in her nurse’s flat near the hospital.
The Mirror has already revealed how Ben had not heard from his wife since Tuesday – when the prank call took place.
The family are also demanding to know how long hospital management knew she was dead after paramedics found her at around 9.30am.
The nurse was unconscious but still alive when ambulance crews arrived but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
A postmortem was held on Tuesday but the results are not yet known while an inquest is due to be opened and adjourned today.
The hospital was unavailable for comment.
