New Poll: Almost 1 in 5 Healthcare Workers Forced Out in 2020-21 So Far

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:

๐Ÿ”ผ12 percent of workers have been laid off or lost a job.

๐Ÿ”ผ19 percent of those who stayed have considered leaving their job and the healthcare industry during the pandemic.

๐Ÿ”ผ 12 percent of those who kept their jobs have considered leaving their job for another healthcare role, according to the poll.

๐Ÿ”ผ79 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.

  1. Jack / Dodie,

    This forced “Vaxing” is much easier to stand up to when your job / livelihood is not dependent on continuing employment with a “Mandatory” policy employer. It takes real guts and likely an alternative source of income.

    My next door neighbor is anti this vax. She is also the director of the oncology wing of a major hospital here in VA. She is very pro-life, having recently delivered baby #6. The hospital administrator told her not to return to work from her maternity leave unless she took the jab. New job, new house, new state, new baby. Her husband works but she is the major income provider. Tough position, very tough. I saw her this morning on her front porch crying. She took the jab yesterday. No more nursing her baby and scared of what the long-term effects will be.

    I’ve said it before but I’ll repeat myself: The Left and Democrats are the Party of Death.

    There is only one way to end this…peacefully. Vote the Left out – of Everything .
    Here in Virginia there is a group called the Virginia Project ( They have fought the Leftist Boards of Ed and managed to get a Republican running against EVERY Democrat in this State’s upcoming election. In years past, Dems quite often ran unopposed in many positions.

    I know I’m preaching to the choir here but it can’t be stressed enough…Every Dem must go. If the Sinemas and Machins want to stay in office they must switch to the party of Life and Liberty. Otherwise, Bye, bye.

    • To a large degree, sadly, it got to this point because of years of going along to get along with the progressives and Marxist. People have to stand up now, but it will be very difficult, but far more difficult in future decades should the progressives/marxists gain more control. Hope the best for that family.

  2. I need Help, I am a PHN at a federal facility, my medical exemption has been denied-I am the only one working so I will be forced to do this-I want to write a letter stating that I am getting this under duress. Are there any templates I can us so that I may have future recourse. Thank you from a nurse
