Mia Titheridge inquest: Teenager died after checks missed by nurse

28 November 2019 – BBC News

An inquest heard that Mia Titheridge, 17, had told staff she was not being checked properly. She was found in her room after taking her own life at Huntercombe Hospital, Norfolk, in 2017.

CCTV showed nurse Olaoye Fagbemiro did not check on her for 57 minutes.

Norwich coroner Jacqueline Lake is contemplating a prevention of future deaths report over the case.

The inquest jury returned a conclusion of suicide and found there was a failure to respond to Miss Titheridge’s low moods and suicidal thoughts, and a failure to carry out frequent observations overnight on 18-19.03.2019.
