Study reveals nurses to quit about UC Health COVID-19 vaccine mandate

Pushback versus spot hospital systems’ mandates for workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 continues with the most up-to-date coming from much more than 100 nurses who say they’d quit before complying. 

A selection of UC Healthcare Middle nurses, responding to a union study, indicated they would leave their work opportunities if the hospital system’s vaccine mandate is finalized. 

The Ohio Nurses Association survey was conducted promptly soon after UC Health and other location medical center programs declared they would mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for their personnel. The survey, completed Aug. 5-12, was made general public Wednesday. Final results clearly show that 136 of 456 nurses who responded – balked at the mandate. The clinical centre has more than 1,500 nurses.

Cincinnati-area medical leaders join Aug. 5 at the Christ Hospital Health Network in Mount Auburn to announce a region-wide vaccination mandate for hospital employees and volunteers starting Oct. 1.

The study underscores the ongoing controversy more than the region’s overall health programs demanding vaccinations, which at just one position landed all six of them in regional courts. A recruiter with St. Elizabeth Health care, a further of the six health devices, not too long ago explained to The Enquirer that the vaccine mandate had led some nurses to quit.

“This locations the medical heart in a quite tough situation, and it locations the nurses in a pretty tough situation,” stated Dominic Mendiola, labor consultant for the nurses affiliation. He said that UCMC has been at capacity on and off since July, and now, 187 nursing positions are posted.
