Statewide nurse safety plea after abduction attempts

THE Queensland Nurses Union will urgently write to Queensland Health today seeking urgent talks over statewide nurse safety after two chilling abduction attempts near Princess Alexandra Hospital over the weekend.

Hospital staff will this morning receive an urgent reminder that security staff are available to walk or drive them to their cars.

One nurse was almost abducted returning to her car at Annerley near Princess Alexandra Hospital on Saturday night.

Soon afterward, a security guard flashed his torch inside the car of two men following three women at a nearby train station.

The two men sped off, but not before he took the car registration and sent it on to police.
