New York Hospitals Face Staff Shortages From Harlem The Hudson

Starting today, health care workers in New York are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

With many workers refusing to get vaccinated, the state could face severe staff shortages.



“I am monitoring the staffing situation closely and we have a plan to increase our health care workforce and help alleviate the burdens on our hospitals and other health care facilities,” said New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.

One option that is supposedly under consideration is the deployment of National Guard medical personnel.

The governor is also reportedly considering an executive order that would allow medical personnel licensed in other states to temporarily practice in New York writes Consumer Affairs.
