Make NSW Hospitals Safe
Increase the number of hospital security officers, change the Health Services Act to give hospital security officers the proactive powers to protect staff, patients & visitors, provide defensive equipment consistent with the proactive changes to the Act.
Why is this important?
NSW Hospitals have seen a number of shootings, stabbings, bomb threats and general increase of threats and violence. we need to have hospital specific proactive security officers with the appropriate legal powers and equipment to ensure staff and visitors don't become patients
