Forget the image of grumpy security guards manhandling unruly patients – horse-loving security officer Fred Nachar tells us what it’s really like working at Westmead Hospital in the latest episode of Western Sydney Health Check.
The much-loved member of the security team talks about how he clocks up tens of thousands of steps each shift helping patients and checking in on staff members.
He also shares how he and his colleagues deescalate aggressive behaviour, and how they support each other with the mental and emotional toll of adrenaline-charged moments.
