Bail for ICU assault accused

Two women accused of assaulting a patient in intensive care have been banned from all of Northern Ireland’s hospitals as part of their bail conditions.

Eileen Selina Stokes,(29), with an address in Newtownstewart, and 23-year-old Bridget Patricia Mongan, of Stanleys Walk, are charged with attempted grievous bodily harm, common assault and disorderly behaviour.

The charges relate to an alleged incident in the Intensive Care Unit of Altnagelvin Hospital on January 4.

They were released on their own bail of £100 to appear in court again on March 13 and banned from entering any hospital except in an emergency.
