A Washington state senator is being ripped for “demeaning statements” about the nursing profession for suggesting that the hardworking healthcare pros “probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day.”

State Sen. Maureen Walsh, a Republican who represents College Place, in rural southeastern Washington near the Oregon border, drew the wrath of state nurses after making the comment on the floor of the Senate.

The article goes on to state the following:

The comments came during a debate on a union-backed bill that would require uninterrupted meal and rest breaks and mandatory overtime protection at all hospitals, the Spokesman-Review reported.

Walsh was arguing that small hospitals with few beds should be exempt, or they may have difficulty staying open under the requirement.

“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.”
