Maternity Ward Suspends Births Due to Fallout from Vaccine Mandates

Policy

Those who are pushing the private sector to coerce their employees with vaccine mandates might want to reconsider. Rather than accomplish the goal, employers may instead find that workers quit rather than comply, thereby crippling the enterprise itself.

That is what happened at a hospital in New York state, which will temporarily close its maternity ward because so many obstetric medical workers have quit rather than be jabbed. From the KIRO story:

Lewis County General Hospital, in Lowville, will temporarily stop delivering babies after Sept. 24, WWNY reported. During a news conference Friday afternoon, Lewis County Health System CEO Gerald Cayer said seven of the 30 hospital workers who resigned were from the hospital’s maternity ward. He added that another seven maternity unit staffers were undecided about getting the vaccine, the television station reported.

The workers were objecting to a Sept. 27 deadline to receive a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the Watertown Daily Times reported. Then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued the state mandate on Aug. 23.

Twenty of the staff members who resigned worked in clinical positions like nurses, therapists and technicians, the newspaper reported.

So, rather than improve the health of the community, at least in this case, mandates have resulted in the opposite. There’s a lesson here that I hope the mandate mongers among us learn quickly.
