A doctor visit may be becoming a lot more dangerous — especially for medical personnel — and local nurses union officials say they want urgent changes made in light of two recent local killings. Most people don’t think of a medical career as particularly dangerous, but they’d be wrong, California Nurses Association-National Nurses United spokeswoman Liz Jacobs said. Union members are calling for tougher safety measures like better lighting in parking lots and security guards in emergency rooms.
