No one was monitoring security cameras, intercom system during attack on Milwaukee nurse

It took two hours for help to arrive

It took two hours for help to arrive for the Froedtert Hospital nurse practitioner killed in a hospital parking garage in January, yet surveillance cameras were rolling when she was attacked as she walked toward her vehicle, according to an article on the Fox6 Now website.

It appears no one was monitoring the security cameras in the parking garage at the Milwaukee hospital, and court documents revealed no one was answering the hospital's intercom system either.

Eventually, an individual hired to remove snow discovered Beaudin under a vehicle at the top of the structure. He "attempted to use the intercom system near the elevator to get help," but "did not receive a response." Instead, he called his boss, who contacted Froedtert security.

A Froedtert spokesperson said four full-time Milwaukee County sheriff's deputies are on campus at all times. It's unclear why no security personnel checked on the parking structure during that two-hour window.
