A nurse who was fired from Christ Hospital Health Network is now seeking to spread the word about the grave injustices being imposed on healthcare workers around the country. Michelle Krinsky said that the flu shot’s ingredients made her uncomfortable, she also claims that the last time she received a flu shot it made her sick.
The hospital did not care and promptly fired her.
“It’s an injustice what they’re doing to healthcare workers with no sound evidence behind it,” Krinksy said to wcpo. “And I think you have to speak out, stand your ground and make other nurses feel they can as well.”
Other hospitals around the country, including Essentia Health, who fired over 60 healthcare workers, are terminating workers who refuse to accept a flu shot.
Worsening the situation, Health Officials just publically stated that this year’s flu shot is nearly worthless, only accounting for a 10% effectiveness rate. That’s an insanely poor result to use as the foundational argument to fire hard working healthcare employees. But that is exactly what’s happening all over the country. And this is why many healthcare workers in Ohio are supporting Ohio House Bill 193. The flu shot’s risk should warrant a choice, as well as protect healthcare workers from being terminated if they choose to not take a flu shot. And that’s what Bill 193 does.
