In the last two or three weeks both Governor Polis and now President Biden have required that all healthcare workers be vaccinated. ALL HEALTHCARE workers.
Yet Quorum, the managers of our hospital, appear to continue to grant waivers to the few D.O.s and nurses that refuse in fear that they will quit. Putting the rest of us at needless risk who need a hospital.
There is nowhere medical staff can work in the USA if they are not vaccinated. Not in this state or any other. Waivers should not be granted to health care workers. Both the Governor and the President have given everyone else who manages hospitals cover now. There is no longer any excuse.
So let the chips fall where they may. Require our healthcare workers to be vaccinated.
It is easier to get vaccinated than it is to look for work and to move away.
Quorum should get some backbone and follow the State and Federal Law.
