No labor means no labor.
Lewis County General Hospital in Lowville, NY, will briefly cease delivering infants, after maternity-ward staff stop quite than be compelled to get the COVID-19 vaccine, in response to studies.
Six staff within the unit resigned over the vaccine mandate, and one other seven are undecided about getting the shot, the county well being system’s CEO, Gerald Cayer, mentioned Friday, in response to WWNY.
“If we can pause the service and now focus on recruiting nurses who are vaccinated, we will be able to reengage in delivering babies here in Lewis County,” he mentioned, in response to the station.
Cayer mentioned 27 % of the hospital’s employees — 165 staff — haven’t gotten the shot.
The state has ordered all health-care employees in New York to get their first shot by Sept. 27 or face termination. After the August announcement by former governor Andrew Cuomo, 30 hospital employees resigned, Cayer mentioned.
