Apparently, for some German companies something like “nursing emergency” only exists on paper – or they have found a way to bake new staff at will: While worldwide everywhere a vaccination requirement for health and care professions has been enforced unlawfully and in a way that is hostile to freedom ( or will), skilled workers who are unwilling to vaccinate give up begging and thus further exacerbate the personnel shortage, some companies either seem not to be aware of this problem – or the pious cultivation of their vaccination religion is more important to them than the continued existence of their company.

In any case, one does not seem to be aware of concerns about the continuation of operations or fears about the quality of care services at the German Benevit Group, which according to its own information employs around 2,000 people in 26 care facilities: Benevit managing director Kaspar Pfister is apparently still proud of no less than 62 of its employees To have released for Christmas of all times – because they did not want to be vaccinated.
Pfister had announced the categorical vaccination requirement for its workforce only last month with effect from December; The reason he gave was that since the beginning of the pandemic, 42 residents of his facilities, clients and one employee had died “to or with” Corona. Broken down to the earlier annual death occurrence (in which the exact causes of death were certainly not examined nearly as meticulously, let alone in connection with a single pathogen!), This number appears for a company of this size, which also serves sick and frail people looked after, rather reassuringly low – but in times of the general staff hysteric of what has always been there (vulgo: “pandemic”) everything is blown into horror.
In any case, his staff did not seem to be impressed by this scare tactic or the usual intimidation attempts. The worries of many Benevit employees about the side effects of the vaccination could not be resolved by promised rewards (a bottle of egg liqueur and € 1,000 bonus per facility or nursing home team) dismantling, which Pfister had promised, as soon as at least 60% of the workforce would be vaccinated.
Eggnog or job loss
It should be the shameful part of the attempt to get the employees to vaccinate “with a carrot”. “The original quota of 30 percent who indicated that they were ready to be vaccinated has not changed”, Pfister then had to admit resignedly. Perhaps his carers weren’t in the mood for eggnog (which would have been something for the generation of the home residents anyway). In the end, the carrot wasn’t sweet enough after all – which is why the “caring” boss unpacked the stick. More than five dozen highly deserved employees, some of them long-standing, have now been released – and they risk losing their jobs if they continue to be “insensitive”.
The blackmail seems to be working: “Since more employees decide to have a vaccination every day, I hope to get 98 percent in January”, said Pfister with great satisfaction. Perhaps he will soon be awarded the title of “People’s Solidarity Entrepreneur of the Month” by the vaccination state, the trade unions and the pharmaceutical industry?
