The New Brunswick Nurses Union wants to see more security guards in hospitals across the province, according to an article on the CBC website.

Paula Doucet, president of the union said many hospitals have just two security guards at night or throughout the day. Plus, the hospitals don't have lockdown protocols.

The numbers of attacks have almost doubled in the past five years.
