If a worker under the Louisiana-based Ochsner Health system is married to someone that’s unvaccinated, that employee will be charged $200 dollars a month and $100 dollars per pay period for violating a new COVID ruling on its way.
The ruling is set to begin in 2022 and will be affecting workers under the nation’s largest health system — furthering overreach from corporations taking advantage of the Oval Office’s vouching for increased vaccination policies. Nurses and healthcare workers are calling the move a U-turn from last year’s treatment in the midst of the pandemic.
In an interview with Fox News, a nurse out of Indiana spoke on the contrast in treatment that healthcare workers are facing now that vaccine mandates are in place to oust any unvaccinated citizen, regardless of their role. “We were celebrated last year. But a few nurses did end up leaving due to [the hospital] not accepting their medical issues or having a reaction or adverse effect to the first dose of the COVID vaccine.”
