Vaccine Mandate Leaves Hospital Serving Waukesha Victims Short-Changed

In the midst of a severe staffing shortage, ’s largest children’s hospital is struggling to provide the best possible care for the children injured in last week’s parade attack.

Seven children remained hospitalized at Children’s Wisconsin Milwaukee Hospital. Some remain in critical condition.

Meanwhile, a high-ranking official speaking on the condition of anonymity told The Federalist that the hospital has hundreds of job vacancies. The hospital’s website lists 239 open positions at its Milwaukee campus alone.

Many of the openings are attributed to the hospital’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Other sources tell The Federalist that the hospital didn’t have enough nurses and auxiliary staff to handle the surge of victims, after a sports utility vehicle plowed into marchers and observers at an annual Christmas parade in nearby Waukesha.

The Federalist reports:

“It was a nightmare,” said one nurse, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she is not authorized to speak on the record. “We just don’t have enough people and [supervisors] were frantically calling in everyone they could, but it wasn’t enough. We are taking care of everyone the best we can, but it’s hard.”

Earlier this fall, Children’s set a Nov. 15 deadline for all staff members to be vaccinated against COVID and boasted of 90 percent compliance. Children’s Wisconsin spokesman Andrew Brodzeller said in late October that any employee who was not fully vaccinated by Nov. 15 would be fired the following day.

“While we don’t want to lose a single team member, we recognize some small number may make the decision to not get vaccinated,” he explained.

Children’s Wisconsin has not released the number of employees who were fired as a result of non-compliance and has not yet responded to a request for comment on this story.

Darrell Edward Brooks Jr. allegedly killed five people at the scene on Nov. 21. An 8-year-old boy died two days later at Children’s Wisconsin.

Forty-eight hours before the rampage, Brooks made $1,000 bail over a domestic violence charge. According to reports, Brooks ran over the mother of his child with an SUV.

Afterward, even Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm admitted that his office set an “inappropriately low” bail for Brooks.
