3. She sounds like a person who has no medical personnel in her family.

I don't know any nurse who wouldn't throw aside their macaroni and cheese on a lunch break to run and help someone or save their life if they were needed. I get the feeling Walsh is an entitled person who was once made to wait and believed those nurses conversing at the station and possibly laughing and making the best of their long shift were pointedly ignoring her. I've been in enough ERs to know you don't just walk up and flag someone down like they're a waiter at Denny's unless something is bleeding or on fire or flatlining. If someone at a desk typing seems to ignore you and not make eye contact, it's because they are doing something very important they need to finish. Sometimes they are trying to discharge patients as quickly as possible to make room for more patients and you needing more ice is not a life or death matter, lady.

This is exactly why these employees need protection. Hospitals can get so busy and are staffed right at the line of forecasted patient population to save money, so it's common that workers never get time to eat. Caregivers who don't have breaks to stop thinking about keeping people alive for a few minutes a day are more likely to make mistakes or injure themselves in a rush.
