Washington state lawmaker apologizes for nursing comments
OLYMPIA, Wash. — A Washington state lawmaker who angered nurses by saying some may spend a lot of time playing cards in rural hospitals says she wishes she could reel that comment back in. State Sen. Maureen Walsh, a Republican, said Monday her comments were taken out of context and that she was concerned that rules in a proposed bill would be a hardship for small hospitals.
