The Numbers Are Rising Rapidly, Patient Care Suffering
Since the pandemic began in early 2020, nearly 1 in 5 healthcare workers, or 18 percent, have been forced out of their jobs, according to new poll results from Morning Consult, a global privately held data intelligence company.
Meanwhile, Northwell, a 23-hospital system and the largest healthcare provider in New York state, announced over 1,400 employees have either resigned or were terminated for refusing to get the mandated experimental COVID-19 “vaccinations” recently.
The poll, conducted in September among 1,000 U.S. healthcare workers, revealed that:
🔼12 percent of workers have been laid off or lost a job.
🔼19 percent of those who stayed have considered leaving their job and the healthcare industry during the pandemic.
🔼 12 percent of those who kept their jobs have considered leaving their job for another healthcare role, according to the poll.
🔼79 percent of healthcare professionals said shortages have affected them and their workplace.
The poll showed the exodus is primarily the result of the pandemic, insufficient pay or opportunities, and burnout, according to Morning Consult.
“You have physicians, you have nurses, dropping out, retiring early, leaving practice, changing jobs,” Dharam Kaushik, MD, a urologist at the University of Texas Health, San Antonio, stated. “You’re experiencing loss of manpower in a field that was already short on manpower before the pandemic hit.”
The number of health workers being forced out are rapidly increasing.
