A close friend of Jacintha Saldanha's family said they have been left devastated by her death, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. Miju Philip, 34, a cardiac care nurse at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, works with some of Mrs Saldanha's close friends.
The family became worried when she wasn't answering their phone calls. They are absolutely devastated at what's happened.
I work on a cardiac intensive care unit and we get lots of calls for patients from family members. It's an easy mistake to make to put someone through like Jacintha did. It wasn't her fault.
Mr Philip spoke after visiting the late nurse's husband Benedict Barboza and their children at their Bristol home.
An inquest has heard that the nurse who transferred a prank call about the Duchess of Cambridge was found hanging in her nurses' quarters.
Jacintha Saldanha's colleagues discovered her hanged in her room in the King Edward VII's Hospital nursing quarters, her inquest has heard.
The family of Jacintha Saldanha say they miss her 'every moment', as Australian hoax DJs say they are 'heartbroken' at her death.
