Dear Ms.Senator I Wish I Can Play Cards

This video of Senator Maureen Walsh came out last  April 16, 2019 a day after I posted my content talking about how nurses being misunderstood “Apology from a Nurse“. Senator Maureen Walsh of Washington State Senate is talking about House Bill 1155, but apparently she happened to mention this about nurses: “probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day”– and it looks like nurses were not happy about it.

So What Happened to Senator Walsh?

It looks like the video became viral and she ended up receiving 1,700 decks of cards in the mail, but then she apologized…

So What Can I say? As a Nurse, Can I Really Play Cards?

I wish I can, or at least I wish I can eat dinner at work, or maybe at least I don’t have to hold my full bladder while letting my patients empty theirs first.

This guy Mr.Josh Pray made a video in response to Senator Maureen Walsh, and I am very much grateful to him. At least someone out there who’s not a nurse understands how it is like to be one…


What happened is a real life proof that nurses are misunderstood and unappreciated. That is one of the things that I’m trying to point out with my blog post that talks about the life as nurse in a 12 hour shift.

Senator Walsh is saying that she does not really mean what she said that day about nurses, and of course we nurses for sure truly understand her. However, maybe next time she should be very careful with her comments, because at the end of the day when she gets older and sick and dying, even her family may leave her side, but Nurses will be the only one there to clean her, feed her, hold her hands, talk to her, and comfort her up to her last dying breathe. And to this I am talking in general…

    Well done. I have certainly seen first hand the wonderful work that nurses do, while they looked after my Mom and Dad when they were in the hospital. There are times in our hospital when the nurses barely have time to sit! Have a great day!

      Thank you so much for appreciating nurses. We rarely get a “thank you”, sometimes. However, we totally understand that all the families and patients in the hospital are very sick and they are in a high level of stress so we understand if they are not on their best manners. 🙂

        Yes, I can understand it’s not easy sometimes, but a thank you is not hard to do. When my Mom passed away I gave the nurses a big bouquet of roses, some chocolates and a nice card. Hope your day is going great!😃
