SEATTLE — Virginia Mason nurses picketed outside the Seattle hospital on Tuesday to demand better staffing and protection against workplace violence.

The picket by hundreds of nurses in the Washington State Nurses Association comes after 15 bargaining sessions.

According to the union, one nurse was stabbed in the face with a butter knife and another was nearly hit in the head with a claw hammer.
