An NHS Trust has launched an investigation into the death of a patient in the early hours in a top psychiatric hospital.
The patient’s tearful mum demanded ‘justice’ after her only child’s death.
She said the ‘big question’ for her was ‘why she died’.
Voluntary patient Anna Rozario, 24, was confirmed dead just before 6am by medical staff in an acute ward at Fountain Way, Salisbury.
Agnes, 56, from Warminster demanded to be told what had happened
She claimed Anna was found dead after not being checked for an hour.
“I do not know how she died in hospital – it is a big question for me.. This is very upsetting
“She had mental health problems – it was too much.”
Director of Nursing Julie Kerry at the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, which runs the hospital said: “We offer our sincere condolences to Anna’s family at this difficult time. In line with our processes and the national serious incident framework we have commissioned an internal investigation into the circumstances surrounding Anna’s death.”
Wiltshire Police stressed there were no suspicious circumstances.
An inquest in Salisbury heard that Anna was confirmed dead at 5.51am on May 27 at Fountain Way Hospital.
A post mortem failed to find the cause of death and toxicology tests were ordered, but expected to take at least three months.
The inquest was adjourned to a date to be fixed.
