Only ER In Long Beach Closes Due To Nursing Staff Shortages From Vaccine Mandate

The COVID World post date: November 23rd, 2021

LONG BEACH, NEW YORK – A Long Beach emergency room was forced to close its doors on Monday because of a shortage of nursing staff as a New York state rule took effect that bars unvaccinated medical workers from their jobs. Officials at Mount Sinai South Nassau said Monday that all other options were exhausted before the decision was made to suspend around 70 unvaccinated workers and close the ER, starting at 3 p.m.

The shutdown is a direct result of the hospital’s compliance with the state’s Department of Health mandate that requires the suspension of all staff working under temporary religious exemptions who could not show proof of receiving the first dose of COVID-19 vaccination or a valid medical exemption.

Mount Sinai South Nassau said the closure could last four or more weeks as the hospital actively recruited qualified staff who are vaccinated.

Given the general shortage of medical staff due to the mandate, the shutdown could last much longer.

These companies were paid off after Trump signed the Cares Act and continue under Biden. That why they can afford to close down. People that subscribe to this 2 party BS are fools

If cooks and servers in a restaurant refused to eat the food and got fired, would you eat there? If Doctors and Nurses refused the experimental shots and got fired, would you get the shot?

Hold the line, what utter fools for them to think having no ER was better than having an ER with unvaxxed workers.
