Paramedics, nurses keep watch at QLD watch-houses
Detainees in watch-houses will be monitored and treated by a paramedics or a nurse in a trial designed to blunt the dangers of alcohol, drugs and street violence.
Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said 17 watch-houses were included in the trial, which was part of the Government’s Queensland-wide ‘Safe Night Out’ Strategy.
Dedicated paramedic officers and registered nurses will begin staffing watch-houses on New Year’s Eve and on Friday and Saturday nights from January 2, 2015.
