Corona scandal: unvaccinated senior doctor shocks with a special armband – hospital management reacts

A senior doctor at a hospital in Essen wanted to protest against corona tests with a self-made armband at work and caused a scandal.

Essen – Anyone who works in hospitals or nursing homes should ideally be vaccinated against the coronavirus * in order not to endanger the endangered patients with a possible infection. However, since there is no compulsory vaccination in Germany, no one can be forced to have a vaccination. Only with regular PCR tests * can it be ensured that the personnel concerned do not come to work with an infection and bring the virus into the company.

For a senior physician in Essen, these measures were apparently too much for unvaccinated people. So, as the WAZ first published, he appeared to work with a self-made armband. It is said to have been labeled “Unvaccinated”. The Essen St. Joseph Hospital in Kupferdreh did not tolerate this “protest” action and immediately instructed the doctor to take off the bandage.

“We very much regret the incident,” said clinic spokeswoman Corinna Bach. The free opinion of everyone and the subjective feelings of the employee would be respected, but it was not acceptable to use the hospital as a place of protest. This is also “not tolerated by the hospital management”.

As the WAZ further reports, the Essen University Clinic also has problems with staff without immunization. At 88 percent, a vaccination rate can be recorded that is above the German population average, but there are still doctors in some cases who continue to refuse vaccination. “Anyone who is still unvaccinated is very difficult to convince,” a spokesman for the hospital is quoted as saying.

Coronavirus: University Clinic in Essen wants to pay attention to vaccination status when hiring

When recruiting new staff, the university clinic wants to ensure that vaccinated people are employed. Jochen Werner, the medical director, told the newspaper that the main aim of this measure was to ensure the protection of patients who are not infected with the corona virus.

As everywhere in Germany, not only in clinics, the risk of vaccination breakthroughs is increasing due to the currently very high numbers. A study has now shown which symptoms vaccinated people should look out for. The hotspots in which most people are infected according to the “luca” app have now also been recorded and evaluated.
