With the traumas of COVID still freshly seared into their minds, New York City nurses are once again sounding the alarm that staffing shortages at local hospitals are jeopardizing the well-being of themselves and their patients. Nurses in the Big Apple and throughout New York State are planning a series of protests starting this week to highlight what they say is a failure on the part of hospitals to staff jobs that started to become vacant after the first pandemic wave roared through the region.(Snip)“We have a massive nursing shortage,” said Eric Smith, the statewide field director for the New York State Nurses Association. “We have a vacuum

They were short staffed before Covid. That was made worse by Covid. Now politicians and hospital administrators are making it even worse with unnecessary vaccine mandates resulting in needless terminations and resignations. This problem was created on purpose with no thought to the resulting care crisis.

If he's not busy writing another leadership book, ask Former Gov. Andrew "Nursing Home Murderer" Cuomo what he thinks. Oh, by the way............. June 15, 2021 "The controversial directive for New York nursing homes to admit COVID-19 patients increased the death toll among residents — and Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s claims otherwise have been disproven, according to a New York State Bar Association report exclusively obtained by The Post."

When they were worshiping our health care workers during the pandemic, they were over the top. Nurses and doctors were, after all, just doing jobs that they get paid for. That they get paid very well for, incidentally. But to do a total 180 like this is outrageous. Nurses and doctors are a lot closer to the hero deities they portayed 18 months ago than the pieces of debris they are treating them like now.

Agree with posters, but it’s happening to a certain extent in other regions. The solution for our local/regional medical gurus is to recruit newbies into a very basic and abbreviated nursing program and shove them into the neat grinder. I call them “shake and bake” nurses. Congrats, medical establishment. Your greed and kowtowing to Xiden and Fauci will destroy your profession and leave your patients out in the cold.

Nurses are only one group of many. The guvmint claims that never vaxxers are in the minority but denying that minority employment will be enough to shut down the country in January. Who is going to pay the government "workers" when nobody else is working? I predict Joe's stupid mandate will be rescinded within days.

I'm convinced the democrats owe a BIG payback to the obama/biden stolen election staffers and big Pharma for their complicit action to jab everyone because every shot is money in their pocket...the shots are not FREE...WE taxpayers pay big Pharma every shot and therein lies the corruption and push for jabs...Americans are waking up and the recent court ruling proves our's illegal to FORCE anyone to take the jab...

This is a universal problem Nurses around the country were over worked during Covid. Like any employee that is overworked in a very high stress environment, nurses quit. Them moved on to other positions outside the hospital. Same happened to Docs, Respiratory therapist and many other healthcare providers. Eventually, they anyone one can get everything at anytime with goobernment price controls will cause such massive shortages that only the elites (i.e Democrats) will be able to get healthcare.

It as been tried before and was called, ''malaise,'' during the Carter era imposed hardships against Americans, but now during Biden's vile dictates it is even worse for all Americans and for this country.

So would someone please provide understanding for me. Joe Biden says people have to be vaccinated or test weekly and OSHA will enforce this mandate. My question is: if an employee does not want to be vaccinated and is willing to test weekly, why is anyone being fired?

Germany is paving the way for the introduction of tighter restrictions on people who have so far chosen not to be vaccinated against Covid-19, in an effort to control its highest infection levels since the pandemic began. On Tuesday the country’s disease control agency, the Robert Koch Institute, recorded a seven-day incidence rate of 312 cases per 100,000 people, with several areas at more than 1,000. A year ago, before the vaccine was introduced, the rate stood at 139. There were 265 deaths reported on Tuesday, much fewer than the pre-vaccine peak.(Snip)Less than 70% of the population is fully vaccinated, leaving Germany considerably

In my state of Colorado, the test positivity rate is almost 10 percent, with 1 in 48 infected and if the current trend continues, this will be the worst COVID spike the state has seen.

Vice President Kamala Harris is being increasingly alienated in the White House as her approval ratings plummet — as the first female veep feels she’s not getting the same support President Biden gives to white male politicians, according to a detailed new report. Despite their public show of unity, Biden and his right-hand woman have a dysfunctional relationship that has reached an “exhausted stalemate,” CNN said based on interviews with nearly three dozen insiders. At a time when the president would usually be expected to promote his vice president as a future replacement in the White House, Biden has instead been sidelining Harris as a potential liability, the report said.
