    18 percent of the system’s … employees had not yet shown proof of vaccination

    So that’s 82% that have done so.

    About 88 percent of teachers and 95 percent of principals are vaccinated, according to the education department, with more than 7,000 vaccinations administered on school campuses last week.

    So the disjoint is with the not-teachers and not principals.

        I don’t know much about the business/labor dynamics of nursing… but in our little town/community there are a lot of Nurses who regularly drop out of the employment pool because they aren’t happy with the state of nursing. Feels like covid is exacerbating some underlying problems, making them worse, which then creates a bit of a spiral as nurses opt out.

        Which is just to say, making an example of Nurses por l’autres is not the place to start… maybe at the end when things are heading for a soft landing it would be possible to address the underlying issues and look at vaccination policies en masse.Report

          Before I went into the technology side of healthcare I was in provider (primarily nurse) staffing. My experience is they really run the gamut from being fixtures at a particular hospital or practice to (sometimes kinda sketchy) hired guns traveling to wherever the hourly rates are highest at a given period of time.Report

            Checks out… their book group name is Sketchy Hired Guns.

            But yeah, it’s the weirdest thing… like my wife will come back and say that Sally works two states over for 48-hrs straight on Tues/Weds. Doesn’t even go home, sleeps at the hospital and gets crazy overtime hours. Then she’ll stop doing that after, say, 8 months – because, you know, 48-hrs two states over. Then 6 months after that she’s got a new gig.

            Weird too because even our little town has a brand new hospital not to mention the big hospitals in each county within 20 min drive. As I say, some sort of weird incentives going on from what I can tell on the outside.Report

            … as a side note, I don’t have Health Care accounts any more… but over the past 20-yrs I’ve put a few tech contracts in place for health care accounts in MD. Would be funny if one of your worst contracts is one I negotiated. 🙂Report
