Nurses at University Hospital call for more security after stabbing
Nurses at University Hospital in Newark are addressing their safety concerns after the stabbing of a co-worker in the parking lot.
They met with security staff from Rutgers University Friday.
The university owns and controls the parking where the attack happened.
Officials with unions representing hospital staff say workers want more lighting and more police presence especially during shift changes.
"I think they're afraid, they want answers and they feel as though we've been failed because of that," says Wanda Caudle-Grimsley, of HPAE Local 5089.
Rutgers University says they'll provide security escorts to parking lots, parking decks and bus stops around the clock.
Meanwhile the man accused of stabbing the nurse Sunday went to court Friday.
He's now facing aggravated assault, robbery and weapons charges.
