Texas Hospital Faces Closure Over COVID-19 Vaccine Orders: CEO

Doctor Biden commands it

Administrators at rural hospitals say they’re frustrated and concerned after president Joe Biden mandated all hospital staff get the COVID-19 vaccine. Some of that stems from inconsistency from regulatory agencies and conflicting orders. Governor Abbott recently prohibited public hospitals from mandating their staff to get the shot.

“How’s Governor Abbott going to take this? He hasn’t complied with anything federal laws have done so far. So, we’re going have to, here in Texas at least, we’re going to have to wait and see how that plays out,” Jerry Jasper, CEO at Brownfield Regional Medical Center said.

According to a 2019 report from the Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals, 26 rural hospitals have closed in Texas in the last decade. The organization cites the driving force behind the closures is Medicare cuts totaling $50 million a year, and a $100 million a year underpayment by Texas Medicaid. Now, the Medicare and Medicaid funding the hospitals do receive is at risk if staffers don’t get the vaccine.

Jasper says nursing agencies are pulling staff away for a bigger paycheck, so losing any workers hurts rural hospitals. He says vaccines are highly encouraged, but not all of his staff have received the shot.

“20 percent of my, probably 20 to 25 percent of my staff will have to go away if that’s the case,” Jasper said.

Jasper says losing those workers would probably shut them down. Losing Medicare and Medicaid money isn’t an option either, as it accounts for 80 to 85 percent of their funding.

“It’s huge in our rural community as all the other rural communities. We all have high poverty levels and stuff like that, so a lot of Medicaid usage in our communities and stuff like that,” Jasper said.

“Well it would be devastating for the community, frankly. We have a large percentage of our revenue that comes from Medicare, Medicaid and those kinds of products,” Larry Gray, Seminole Hospital District CEO said.

Gray says about 70 percent of his staff have been vaccinated. While he encourages the vaccine and says it’s safe, he doesn’t think the mandate is the right approach.

“I think the mandate is just a terrible message because if the vaccinations are working, why do you have to mandate people to get the vaccines? What happens to individual choice and medical decisions between the patient and their doctor, which is all of the things that we’re trying to support,” Gray said.

Gray says every week, the hospital gets a new regulation from a new agency, the inconsistency being tough for the health care community to absorb. CMS hasn’t sent out any rules yet, so Jasper says it’s a waiting game to see what those rules are and if the state joins the fight against the mandates.

What happens to individual choice and medical decisions between the patient and their doctor, which is all of the things that we’re trying to support,” Gray said.

This man’s sentiment is in the right place, he’s even asking the right questions.

But he’s stuck on the wrong answer.

He’s still encouraging the “vaccines” because he thinks they’re “safe”.

He can’t see that the “vaccines” are being mandated because they don’t work, and what’s more, in less than one year they have maimed and killed many times more people than all other vaccines in history combined.

And he can’t understand, that’s why medical professionals are refusing to be injected.

Cognitive dissonance.

…in less than one year [vaccines] have maimed and killed many times more people than all other vaccines in history combined.

Do You have a source on that claim?

The American Vaccine Adverse Events & Reporting System (VAERS) keeps a running tally of reported adverse events and deaths for all vaccines, including (obviously) the ongoing track record of the Corona Chan “vaccines”.

Note that this is a voluntary system – people have to actually take the time to sit down at a computer and report adverse events and deaths to VAERS – and various studies (including from Havard) have concluded that VAERS may capture as little as only 1% of actual adverse events (so bear that in mind when you see the reported figures).

Anyway, to answer your question, here’s a web site showing that more injuries and deaths have been caused by Corona Chan “vaccines” just in the first few months of 2021 than all other vaccines combined for the last 15 years.

https://vaccineimpact.com/2021/mass-murder-3486-deaths-in-the-u-s-following-covid-injections-in-4-months-more-vaccine-deaths-recorded-than-the-past-15-years-combined/

That was months ago. At present, VAERS reports about 15,000 American Corona Chan “vaccine” deaths, versus a total of about 5,000 deaths from all other vaccines in history combined.

And whistleblowers in the CDC claim that the true figure for American Corona Chan “vaccine” deaths is already more than 50,000. Even worse, if the Havard estimate of 1% reporting on VAERS is true, then the actual number of deaths would be somewhere north of 1,500,000 – so far.

If you have the time and patience, you can interrogate the VAERS database and assess the actual reported figures for yourself…
