Nationwide shortage of school nurses may be putting kids' lives at risk

Nationwide shortage of school nurses may be putting kids' lives at risk Over the past several years, multiple children have died after facing medical emergencies in their schools when no nurse was on duty , reports Hilary Lane. Last October, Rasheen Pressley's 9-year-old son Hasoun collapsed in the school cafeteria. He was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead of heart failure. "They failed him all ways. Like they wasn't there to help him," Pressley said. "He was my only son. … there weren't nobody there to help him. Nothing." There was no school nurse on duty that day.

A Washington state senator is being criticized after saying nurses should be exempt from uninterrupted meal breaks and mandatory overtime protection because they "probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day."  Maureen Walsh, a Republican, was arguing for an amendment that would exclude small hospitals from a bill that would require nurses to have the breaks.

Walsh said nurses at small hospitals "probably do get breaks. They probably play cards for a considerable amount of the day."

Google Pay can find your tickets and loyalty cards in Gmail

Google Pay can find your tickets and loyalty cards in Gmail It just became decidedly easier to use your Android phone to board a flight or see a movie.

Walsh's comments were made Tuesday on the Senate floor, but they went viral Friday after Washington State Nurses Association posted a blog post about it. There were so many readers on the site that the blog temporarily crashed on Friday, according to the Spokane-Review.

The bill, which is supported by nurses' unions, passed the Senate with the amendment excluding small hospitals. The Washington State Nurses Association opposes the amendment, saying that medical errors can be caused by fatigue, which could be addressed by rest breaks.

The bill had previously passed the House without the amendment.

The Washington State Nurses Association called Walsh's comments "incredibly disrespectful and patronizing" in a blog post.
