Forty-four nurses on the psychiatry and behavioral medicine unit at Seattle Children's Hospital signed a letter requesting management's support in curbing violent incidents they say have increased over the past few weeks.

Police have been called twice to respond to incidents of violence on the unit in the past two weeks, the Washington State Nurses Association, which represents more than 2,000 nurses at the hospital, said in a Nov. 27 news release.
