Six hospital workers were fired because they were not vaccinated
At least 6 employees of the New Jersey hospital were fired for not being vaccinated. The freedom of will, they say.
According to RWJBarnabas health announced in May that the workers must be vaccinated by the end of June. Six of the workers did not comply with the hospital new mandate and found themselves unemployed.
The medical center in its turn cited “an ethical and professional responsibility to protect our patients and ensure a safe, COVID-19 free environment” as the reason for mandating inoculations.
“Thanks to the incredible commitment of our leaders, the vast majority of our management team has been vaccinated against COVID-19. As of July 14, 2,979 staff members, or 99.7 percent, who are at the supervisor level and above, have been fully vaccinated or received medical and religious exemptions or a deferral,” that statement said. “Regrettably, six staff at the supervisor level and above have not complied with the mandate and are no longer employees of RWJBH, per our policy.”
The total vaccination is also expected for all staffer, including physicians.
