The King Edward VII Hospital denied that its management had been contacted by the radio station.

"Following the hoax call, the radio station did not speak to anyone in the hospital’s senior management or anyone at the company that handles our media inquiries," the hospital said in a statement.

It also announced a memorial fund to help support the nurse’s family, with the hospital making the first donation.

Vaz, however, called on the hospital to do more. He urged it to hold an inquiry into Saldanha’s death and said no one from King Edward VII had visited her family.

"I’m a little surprised that nobody has made the journey to Bristol to sit with them and to offer them the counseling that I think that they need," he said.

Saldanha had two children. Her husband, Ben Barboza, expressed his sadness on his Facebook page with a short note "Obituary Jacintha."

"I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances," he wrote. He said she will be laid to rest in Shirva, India.

Meanwhile, there were indications that the Duchess of Cambridge still struggled with acute morning sickness over the weekend when her husband, Prince William, cancelled a Sunday night engagement.

Palace officials said no final decision had been made on whether Kate would attend Wednesday’s British premiere of "The Hobbit," where she and William are to be the guests of honor.
