Queensland Corrective Services says the officer had rushed to help a prisoner suffering a medical emergency at Brisbane Correctional Centre about 5am on Thursday.

The prisoner allegedly bit the officer on the hand, QCS said.

The guard needed treatment at the scene before he was rushed to hospital.

The prisoner was restrained and treated at the scene before being taken hospital under escort.

Other guards at the scene were also assessed after getting blood on their clothing and skin.

The QCS says it doesn’t yet know how serious the guard’s hand injury is.

It said the incident will be referred to the Corrective Services Investigation Unit for investigation.

Brisbane Correctional Centre general manager Chief Superintendent Rob Wood said the prisoner had been “highly agitated and volatile”.

“This was a very difficult situation to manage, and our officers did a remarkable job to bring the prisoner under control and support their injured colleague,” Chief Supt Wood said.

“Every day our officers deal with complex and challenging individuals, and this incident shows the challenges faced by officers every day.”

Chief Supt Wood said the officers involved in the incident would be provided “with every possible support”.
