Workers say a lack of staff and training is causing serious problems.

At a morning rally, they said they've been forced several times to break up fights between patients, or even defend themselves.

The workers have complained to management, but they claim their bosses have not listened.

ABC7 called Alameda County Medical Center, who runs the hospital, for a response to the accusations, but they have not responded.
