It was only a matter of time before some of these nurses began taking legal action to protect their rights. Some litigation began last year, but details are not available publicly.
Dr. Karen Sullivan Sibert, herself a pro-vaccine doctor, wrote an opinion piece explaining how requiring nurses to wear masks for refusing the flu vaccination violates HIPPA law for patient privacy.

In addition to the violation of personal rights, the CDC published a study in 2013 showing that vaccination of healthcare workers with the seasonal flu vaccine offered no significant measurable protection of patients from the flu.

And as we have reported here at Health Impact News, the flu vaccine is not without risk. The government’s own data on settled cases due to vaccine injuries show that the flu vaccine causes more serious injuries, including death, than all other vaccines combined.

Now, the Law Offices of James Elsman has issued a press release stating that they have a client who is a nurse that has lost her job due to refusing the flu vaccination, and she has filed a class action suit for one hundred million dollars against the hospital that fired her, as well as the state and federal governments.
It should be noted that the new Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) has mandated that healthcare facilities must have 90% of their employees vaccinated with the flu vaccine to receive full reimbursements of Medicare and Medicaid payments.
Law Offices of James Elsman Announces Suit: Nurse Refuses Shots — Sues Hospital, Federal and State Governments for $100,000,000 Claiming Flu-Shots Have Many Dangers and Questionable Advantages
DETROIT, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — A nurse was fired from her Hospital job for refusing to take the flu-shot on religious and health grounds, and is “blowing the cover off many dangers of the flu vaccine,” says her lawyer, James Leonard Elsman of Birmingham, Michigan.
Karen Bashista of S. Lyon, Livingston County, Michigan was a nurse for St. Joe Hospital, and was fired for not taking the flu-shot; though she offered to wear a mask, be moved to another floor and function, etc. She said “Hospital doctors got waivers of such.”
Elsman said this is the first suit in the U.S.A., which joins a termination with a major challenge to the efficacy of the much-vaunted “flu-shot,” because he is suing not only the Hospital, but also the C.D.C. (“Centers for Disease Control”) of the U.S. Government, and the State Community Health Dept.
Nurse Bashista continued: “People are just waking up to the dangers of flu-shots and other vaccination shots that we don’t question, because ‘government’ recommends such. Well, if government is so smart, why can’t they even administer Obamacare? Government is grasping at straws and many physicians know this, more and more. Why don’t they always take the flu-shots?”
Elsman said the flu-vac is made many months “before” the yearly-strains are even known, so it is a guess in the dark. “A shot into your body is putting an attenuated flu virus into you — remember when Piers Morgan of CNN actually got the flu, ‘right after’ some CNN doctor gave him the flu-shot on live TV? A scandal is brewing. There is no proof of efficacy, i.e. that it works in all cases. Medicine should be ashamed. Mrs. Bashista is standing up for all Americans.”
$100 million is prayed for, because the suit is a Class Action on behalf of all Americans in all States, concluded Elsman. “We will no longer take modern-medicine’s or the Government’s kool-aid. People deserve ‘informed consent’!”
