Orange County Register

After two weekend attacks at Los Angeles-area hospitals left one nurse seriously injured, the California Nurses Association on Monday called for improved safety to better protect workers and patients.

The nurses association said the attacks are part of a growing number of incidents against health care workers. The group called on state lawmakers to approve a bill to ensure hospitals have violence prevention plans in place that protect workers against aggressive and violent behavior.
