The coming nurse shortage AKA hospitals overwhelmed

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how many nurses are refusing to take the jab but from what I'm reading it's a lot. Maybe 30-40%.

Major health systems are requiring their staff to be vaxed by Nov 1st. How many nurses will get vaxed and how many will allow themselves to be fired will be interesting.

You can expect the media to report it as the hospitals being overwhelmed. While not mentioning anything about the the true cause of lack of staff

Most nurses vaccinated, support mandates: 8 ANA survey findings

About 88 percent of surveyed U.S. nurses are vaccinated against COVID-19, or plan to be vaccinated, according to survey findings from the American Nurses Association published Aug. 18. 

The findings are based on responses from 4,912 U.S. nurses. The survey was administered between July 6-30, 2021. 

Seven more survey findings: 

1. Nearly 59 percent of respondents said they support vaccine mandates put in place by employers. 

2. Eighty-four percent of nurses said they would get a booster dose if recommended. 

3. About 81 percent of respondents said they are comfortable or very comfortable recommending the vaccine. 

4. Almost 66 percent of nurses who responded said FDA approval would not change their current stance on the vaccines. 

5. Fifty-eight percent of respondents said they have ongoing questions regarding immunity and how long vaccine effectiveness lasts. Questions about whether additional boosters will be needed was the second most-selected response. 

6. Among those who were not vaccinated, 84 percent selected "Not enough information about long-term effects of the vaccine" as a reason why. 

7. Sixty-six percent of respondents said they feel they are getting enough information about the vaccines.

25% of nurses don't trust the vaccine, and 1/2 will get it anyway? Under threat I suppose. Still doubt it.

88% of nurses are vaxed or plan to be vaxxed. That's a useless stat. That could include nurses who plan to be vaxed not until 2025 once enough data is available to make them feel ok with it.  Or if the data is bad they never will.  Do you even read what you post honcho?

Not to mention almost half of the nurses in the study were over 55...well into the age group of seriously considering the vax.

Right, that survey is embarrassingly bad. Not surprised who posted it.

Not just nurses. RT's too. I'm getting offers for 20K a month on travel contracts.

Possibly, but it will also depend on the stats, especially now that we have the current wave to compare to.  If hospitalizations/deaths are way down from where we are now, then gonna be tough to make the claim that it's due to covid.   As alluded to in the general thread, they may get overwhelmed due to flu once we get into the winter, but it won't be reflected in the covid numbers, since the tests are and have always been different.

That's a useless stat, but no questions for Cdub's claim maybe 40% of nurses aren't going to get the vaccine.  :lol:

No one should be forced to take the vaccine.

Whatever the % of unvaccinated nurses is, as long as they agree to be tested weekly, I see no reason to force them to take something they don't believe in.

This is going to get ugly. 

Thanks China

This.  This and 'bow-howdy' this.  Problem is that the 'China' part of this is and will (currently) always be a mystery ...

It's as relevant as the other. I saw one newspaper reported 88% were vaxxed. :lol:  No one really knows the number, do they?
