Nurses push for better hospital safety after stabbings
Sacramento Business Journal

Weekend stabbings of two registered nurses at two separate Los Angeles hospitals heighten the need for stronger safety measures in California hospitals, nurses say.

The first incident occurred at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar early Sunday morning, when a man made it past a weapons screening center and stabbed a nurse in the upper body, according to the Los Angeles Times. Several hours later, a man walked into Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, passed through a weapons screening area, and stabbed a nurse in the ear, the Times reported.
