It is completely ironic seeing what is happening in our country today and our hospital system.
Last year, we were told that. we needed to lockdown for 14 days so that we could slow the spread of COVID so that the hospital system would not collapse.
Well, at least that is what the mainstream media told us all.
Many agreed with the measure while others were understandably quizzical of the choice to put such strict conditions on the country.
Healthcare workers survived a year without the vaccine and were doing amazing work and should be applauded for their efforts in saving lives and helping people through the dark days.
And the hospital system did not collapse at all.
It has been 18 months since the beginning of the crisis and still, we are facing strict mandates, threats of future lockdowns, and in some cases, people being forced to vaccinate or lose their jobs.
Now, we are facing a collapse in the hospital system.
A critical nursing shortage.
But don’t let the mainstream media twist the reason why hospitals are witnessing a nursing shortage.
Many hospitals find themselves short-staffed due to experimental COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
Nurses who don’t want the jab are quitting or getting fired from their jobs.
And the consequences of forcing nurses out are
starting to unfold across the country.
Here’s the latest:
It's about to get worse because nurses are quitting about vaccine mandates.
There's about to be a crisis. https://t.co/u7QTzyzwpq

I know a nurse in my area who said if they mandate the vaccine 30% of staff will quit the next day. I'm sure that's all around the work force.

USA: Nurses protests against government vaccine mandate…https://t.co/iukPYAiGKd

Last year, these nurses were praised as "heroes" for providing care during the pandemic.
Now, these same heroes who choose not to get the vaccine are vilified. https://t.co/Tz7peNOZrL

A nurse & local ER doctor (not w/ Med Center) were among the protesters I spoke with at the vaccine mandate protest.

This is happening around the country.
Nurses who were praised as heroes of COVID-19 last year are now facing unemployment if they choose medical freedom.
If they decide not to receive the experimental jab, then they’re out of a job.
Also note the reference to “acute behavioral and mental health services.”

I can’t even count how many emails I’ve received on this since yesterday. This is going to be a national crisis.

Remember the Houston nurses who filed a lawsuit against their hospital’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate?

Shepherd and her colleagues may be disposable in the eyes of hospital administrators, but they are perhaps not as easily replaced as she or Houston Methodist thought.
Two months after firing unvaccinated hospital staff, Houston Methodist is one of several area hospitals experiencing a severe shortage of medical personnel. Media reports say hospitals have “reached a breaking point” because of a flood of COVID-19 cases.
In an editorial published Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle said the 25-county hospital area that includes Houston had more patients in hospital beds—more than 2,700—than at any point in 2021. News reports make it clear that hospitals are struggling to keep up.
KHOU-11, a local news station, says medical tents have been erected outside of Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital but are vacant because of a shortage of nurses.

Health Impact News summed up the unfolding scenario:
The United States is now facing a critical nursing shortage in hospitals as many nurses are quitting rather than complying with COVID vaccine mandates, or they are being fired.
We have also documented several stories this year where nurses have died or been crippled from the COVID shots.
Hospitals will soon be “overwhelmed” not because of outbreaks of COVID, but because the critical care staffing is being severely depleted by the COVID shots.
