Lauren Ellis (pictured above) was found strangled after mental health nurses failed to check on her at the facility in Guernsey
Two mental health nurses missed the suicide of a vulnerable woman in a secure mental health unit 'because they were too busy on their phones'.
Lauren Ellis was found strangled with a binding around her neck at a secure mental health unit in Guernsey.
The 22-year-old had been recognised as a high-risk patient and therefore had to be checked on every 15 minutes.
Despite this the final six checks before she died were not carried out, leading to the arrest of mental health nurses Rory McDermott, 32, and Naomi Prestidge, 31.
