'She wouldn't be able to shout for help'

A family of a woman with severe disabilities has claimed she was put in a mixed-gender ward in Antrim Area Hospital just weeks after a report was circulated advising of stricter protocols.

The report made the recommendations after a patient with learning difficulties, Natasha Mulholland, was sexually assaulted in her hospital bed by a man in the ward.

The family of Meghan Hunter said she would not have been able to cry for help had she been attacked after being admitted to a similar ward to Ms Mulholland.
