After a federal judge temporarily suspended the Biden administration’s vaccine requirements for federally-funded health care institutions in at least 10 states on Monday, hospitals in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming are effectively prohibited from getting rid of essential workers who have yet to get the COVID-19 jab.
Many hospitals in other states, however, are hemorrhaging desperately-needed health care workers just because of their vaccination status.
“The scale falls clearly in favor of healthcare facilities operating with some unvaccinated employees, staff, trainees, students, volunteers, and contractors, rather than the swift, irremediable impact of requiring healthcare facilities to choose between two undesirable choices — providing substandard care or providing no healthcare at all,” U.S. District Judge Matthew Schelp wrote.
Schelp is right; while health care systems in the 10 aforementioned states are better protected to keep their unvaccinated staff on board to assist and treat patients, hospitals, specifically rural ones, in other states are struggling to keep people alive due to understaffing directly linked to COVID-19 shot mandates.
“The implication of that for rural hospitals, in particular, is, how are we going to keep delivering babies if we don’t have nurses for the OB unit? How are we going to keep taking care of trauma if we don’t have nurses and respiratory therapists and lab technicians in the emergency room?” John Henderson, president and CEO of Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals, told KENS5 .
With already limited access to specialized professionals, long commutes to other health care centers, and a medical supply chain hampered by long and sometimes arduous treks, rural hospitals already wrestle with meeting the medical moment when it comes. The Biden administration’s insistence that every medical worker, many of whom risked their own health and toiled long hours to work through the height of the pandemic before a vaccine became available, must get the shot to continue serving is devastating their communities.
Rural hospitals rely heavily on federal funding to provide basic services to people who live far from urban medical hubs, so refusing to comply with the federal mandates in an […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
