Newsom Forces Hospitals to Fire Nurses/Doctors—National Guard Brought in to Keep Hospitals Open

So far four California hospitals are in need of the National Guard, just to stay open.  At a time when we have a massive shortage of doctors and nurses, government has decided to make it worse.  Guv Newsom is forcing hospitals to fire health professionals—who KNOW what is in the vaccines, so they do not want to be jabbed.

“Teams of up to 17 National Guard troops were sent over the past week to staff the hospitals in two counties: Mercy Medical Center Redding, in Shasta County in the northern part of the state; and Adventist Health Bakersfield, Bakersfield Memorial Hospital and Mercy Hospital Southwest — Bakersfield, in Kern County in Central California, according to a statement from the California National Guard.

The rate of recent daily cases per person in California overall is very low, second only to Connecticut in the mainland United States, according to a New York Times database.

Kaiser, about to have a strike due to a shortage of nurses, just fired 2200—making the situation critical.  In fact, people in need of surgery, desperate need, may not be able to get it at Kaiser.  Government in its effort to prove citizens are owned by government, is causing a health crisis—people will die thanks to Newsom and the Democrats.

California’s National Guard is deployed to assist four beleaguered hospitals

The rate of COVID cases is very low, but some hospitals are still overwhelmed

By Alyssa Lukpat, SF Examiner, New York Times, 10/6/21 

The California National Guard has been deployed to four hospitals in Northern and Central California, where some areas with relatively low vaccination rates have struggled to handle an influx of COVID patients.

Teams of up to 17 National Guard troops were sent over the past week to staff the hospitals in two counties: Mercy Medical Center Redding, in Shasta County in the northern part of the state; and Adventist Health Bakersfield, Bakersfield Memorial Hospital and Mercy Hospital Southwest — Bakersfield, in Kern County in Central California, according to a statement from the California National Guard.

The rate of recent daily cases per person in California overall is very low, second only to Connecticut in the mainland United States, according to a New York Times database.

But hospitals in some parts of the state have been overwhelmed by a delta variant—driven surge of COVID patients. New cases and hospitalizations reached or exceeded peak levels in mid-September in Shasta County and have been trending back down. In the more populous Kern County, hospitalizations jumped at the beginning of last month but have been falling ever since.

The amount of fully vaccinated people in both counties — 42% of the population — is far below the statewide rate of 59%.

The National Guard’s deployment in California coincides with a mandate that took effect last week that requires all of the state’s health care workers to be vaccinated. Major health systems reported that the mandate had helped boost their vaccination rates to 90% or higher. There have been no reports of mass firings of health care workers in the state.

Each National Guard medical team includes a physician assistant or registered nurse who leads a group of medical and administrative assistants, Lt. Col. Jonathan M. Shiroma, a spokesperson for the state National Guard, said in the statement.

The situation at Mercy Medical Center Redding was further complicated by the Fawn Fire, which left about 30 staff members unable to work toward the end of the month, the Record Searchlight in Redding reported. A spokesperson for the hospital did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday night.

Several states have called on the National Guard to ease the strain on hospitals during the pandemic. Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon asked in August for at least 500 of the state’s National Guard troops to help staff hospitals. Idaho Gov. Brad Little also deployed state National Guard troops this summer.

  1. The Nuisance Newsom creepo should be demanded by the citizenry to post the laughably absurd ‘executive orders’ against doctors, nurses, and other healthcare worker on his amateurish website with the same demand made upon other attention-seeking greed-infested governors and mayors. They will not display publicly these EO’s since they know full well their tyrannical actions are farcical and can and will be used against them in courts and in future elections.

    Dear Conservative person, There is nothing left for you in California. I think you should come to Florida. Here in Florida we are no so woke be you black or white you still just folk. Its a nice place to live. There is no state income tax. You will make less but that can translate into the same standard of living with less federal income tax. We have a Governor we just call Ron who diligently protects us from federal overreach. If you dont have a criminal record its easy to get a concealed carry permit. If you sell your house in California you can get enough money to buy a house in Florida and apply the difference to any outstanding debt you have thereby reducing your debt stress. Simplify your life, come work, love, and make your life here and when you retire you wont even have to move.

    If Newsom didn’t cheat to stay in power, then you people in California deserve what you get. A dictator.

      No doubt at all that he cheated. Keep your eyes and ears open for a huge lawsuit in the next few months by Election Integrity Project Ca.

    There is no “Delta Variant”, the great majority of those sick and dying in this latest round are those who have been “vaccinated”. In the UK where we can get some actual numbers, it’s 87%. Plainly, it’s the “vaccine” itself that is making all these people sick and killing them.
    The stated goal of the Globalists is to reduce Earth’s human population to one billion people and the Globalists have taken over. If you can’t figure out why things are changing so drastically, given that information, then you will join the 7 billion who don’t have long to live.

    The vaccine mandates applied to healthcare workers, government employees and contractors, teacher and now students are medically unethical. All Covid 19 vaccines are messenger RNA vaccine that are ONLY approved for Emergency Use Authorization. That means they are still experimental, and you are coercing or forcing employees to participate in a Phase 3 trial (and without informed consent). This is against the Nuremberg code of ethical research.

    Regarding forced Covid testing of the unvaccinated employees – this is a punitive form of coercion, designed to wear people down until they give in and receive the jab. This is like telling a Jehovah Witness that they have to receive a blood transfusion, or else receive a daily blood draw until their blood count drops so low, that they have to receive a blood transfusion.

  6. And what about the guard which have refused the shot? Curious what those numbers are.

  7. Jerry Rockwell says

    Boy, thanks governor, I really need a National Guardsman to treat my heart condition? I know they have to be much more qualified. And I really need a National Guardsman to help calibrate my pacemaker.
    Who needs doctors or nurses? If a guy can carry a rifle, he is certainly more qualified than a doctor or nurse.

    State Governors nominally call up the guard for 15 to 60 days because most guard have actual employment in businesses. Try calling up thousands of these individuals and you are almost certain to have a bunch who are unvaccinated and will resign from the national guard if required to be vexed.

  9. GARY MARTIN says

    What about “standard of care”? Where’s the ANA on issues such as this. Staffing/patient ratio is suffering as well. These healthcare issues are being thrust upon the masses by politicians, NOT SCIENCE.

  10. Could somebody please explain to me why over 1/3 of the healthcare workers in New York State, have all refused to get the vaccine?

  11. What did you expect when we didn’t recall this elitist a$$hole?

  12. Newsom can go full-Nazi on the vaccine because this is a very, very blue state and sadly, about 80% of the people are afraid that if they encounter anyone not vaccinated they’re gonna get the Vid and die. They WANT government to mandate that 100% be vaccinated. Some even say they hope that all the unvaccinated will die of CoVid to teach them a lesson. You can’t fight this in California, there are too few people who still have a working mind.

    • Granted this state has way too many sheep. Unfortunately too many here believe the B.S. I guess you can’t fix stupid.

  13. Because the shot has nothing to do with the virus do your homework and STOP LISTENING TO THE NEWS

  14. Richard Wahl says

    Dr. Robert Malone invented the mRNA “vaccine”. He has just stated that this virus is not lethal and is centered only around the elderly with underlying conditions. He also stated that the vaccine should only be given to the previously noted people. Dr. Malone called Fauci a LIAR.

    Supposedly, those taking the vaccine are being poisoned with Graphene Oxide which is causing blood clots in everyone taking the jab, the deadly effects to be felt over the Fall and Winter months. Look up Graphene Oxide on the NIH website.

  15. I think the major problem with California is that everyone in government thinks they have roses growing out of their ass.
