Mandating dose error reduction
Nurses have filed for exemptions on religious and medical grounds but expect very few, if any, to be honored.”“The Minnesota Department of Health is on the record that there is no evidence to suggest that healthcare systems mandating flu shots see a significant reduction in influenza cases in their facilities.” The fact that the Minnesota Department of Health have seen no significant reduction in the number of cases of flu in their facilities makes a mockery of Essentia’s decision to reinforce a flu vaccine mandate.They are not the only organization to report that the vaccine is useless, because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have also reported that the vaccine is ineffective.
(In) 1995 I think they bought the clinic from us.”“I always said I could work to 70, I just turned 60, but I was thinking probably another 10 years in some form of work.In an article titled The Truth Behind Flu Shot Mandates for Healthcare Workers, founder of the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute, Ms.Claire Dwoskin, explained the reason why she believes that flu vaccination is being mandated for health workers. Nass discovered that the Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) established by Medicare and organizations like the National Quality Forum, a federally established, public-private health quality assessment organization are created for the purpose of enforcing policies that are selected as “quality improvement” measures, whether or not they improve care or lower costs.Speaking out about the flu vaccine’s safety and efficacy, he told reporters that, while the flu vaccine is not perfect, some years, it can still be over 50 percent effective and that, in his opinion, some prevention is better than no prevention.
While this opinion may be true, this could also mean that even after receiving the vaccine, 50 percent of his staff could still remain unprotected and be a potential risk to patients.
Adamant that their policy of mandating the flu vaccine is correct, Essentia Health is reported to have terminated the employment of 69 members of their staff this Christmas season.
