The identity of a serial paedophile, who had been grooming, molesting, and drugging children whilst working as a nurse at the Launceston General Hospital, has been revealed as 69-year-old Legana man, James ‘Jim’ Geoffrey Griffin.

Griffin admitted to the abuse during police questioning in October of last year, after victims came forward, but just weeks later took his own life.

Emily Shepherd, Secretary of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) Tasmanian Branch, joins Aaron Stevens to discuss how something like this was able to take place for so long, and the protections that will stop it from happening again.

Hettie Johnston, Founder and Director of Bravehearts, also joins Aaron to praise the courage of the survivors who came forward, highlighting just how important it is to speak up despite how hard it can be.
