A New York emergency room, the Long Beach Emergency Department, that sees about 10,000 visitors each year, will be closed for at least a month due to the state’s vaccine mandate. The Long Beach Emergency Department is the only emergency room in that city, yet the company fired about 72 employees who had religious exemptions from the jab mandate. The state officially ended all religious exemptions for healthcare workers on Monday. Only 1% of the staff was unvaccinated, but the president of the parent company shut down the emergency room in the name of safety. The Long Beach Emergency Department hopes to reopen, if it can hire vaccinated nurses, in mid-December.

A New York emergency room will be closed for at least a month due to the state’s vaccine mandate.

The Long Beach Emergency Department, operated by Mt. Sinai South Nassau hospital system, fired about 72 employees who had religious exemptions from the jab mandate. The state officially ended all religious exemptions for healthcare workers on Monday.

“Some of these six dozen employees are ER nurses who the hospital said are not easily replaced due to training and other factors,” NBC New York reported. “The emergency department, which sees about 10,000 visitors annually, will be closed for at least a month.”

The president of Mount Sinai South Nassau hospital system said closing an emergency room is in the interest of the safety of the community because some of the staff, totaling one percent, are not vaccinated. “We regret having to take this step but the safety of our patients is always our No. 1 priority,” Dr. Adhi Sharma said.

“This will allow us to shift nursing staff to the Oceanside campus to ensure that we maintain adequate staffing at the Emergency Department at our main campus,” Sharma said.

Long Beach Emergency Department is the only emergency room in that city.

Wait until these nurses start dropping. Wake up you only get one shot at life.

The hospital president, Dr. Sharma, said that patient safety is their number one priority. I suggest that this is false and that their true number one priority is complying with their COVID cult voodoo rituals so that their public health “gods” don’t bring misfortune and suffering upon their sorry excuse for a hospital system.
