Washington Senator Says Nurses Spend "Considerable" Time Just Playing Cards

Senator Maureen Walsh is being harshly criticized for “demeaning statements” about the nursing profession for suggesting that the hardworking healthcare pros “probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day.” The nurses association in Washington State is asking for legislation that would require uninterrupted meal and rest breaks and mandatory overtime protection no matter the size of the hospital. She was trying to make a point saying that small hospitals won't be benefited by this bill and that's when she said quote: “I would submit to you that those (small hospital) nurses probably do get breaks,” Walsh said, according to the outlet. “They probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day.”

I don't know you guys, but I had to spend time in the hospital many times, and I have to say one thing, NURSES are the hardest and kindest people are ever met. So senator, excuse me, but you are WRONG!! What do you guys think?
