An emergency room in a hospital in New York ceased operation as staff walked out, refusing to go along with the COVID vaccine mandate.
A statement released by the Mount Sinai South Nassau hospital notes that workers were given an ultimatum to either get vaccinated or be banned from coming to work.
A significant number of staff chose the latter, leading to the ER in Long Beach to shut down….
“The Emergency Department in Long Beach operated by Mount Sinai South Nassau, will be closed temporarily as of 3 PM today due to nursing staff shortages,” the statement announced.
It continues, “The staffing shortage and closure of the LBED is a result of the Hospital’s compliance with the NYSDOH’s mandate… requiring the suspension of all staff working under temporary religious exemptions who could not show proof today of receiving a first dose of COVID-19 vaccination or a valid medical exemption from receiving it.”
“We regret having to take this step but the safety of our patients is always our No. 1 priority,” the statement continues, adding “This closure should not be interpreted as anything beyond what it is – a temporary measure designed to relieve current staffing challenges in our Emergency Department.”….
Uh, no, it’s actually a very loud vote of no confidence in american medicine by american medical experts. Buyer beware.
