Louisiana Court of Appeal Rules in Favor of Shreveport Nurses and Grants Restraining Order Against Ochsner Hospital from Firing Unvaxxed Employees


The Louisiana Second Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a temporary restraining order on Thursday against Ochsner Hospital and for all hospitals statewide from firing employees who refuse to get vaccinated while the mandate’s legality is in court.

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeal in Shreveport ruled in favor of Shreveport nurses just a day before Ochsner Health’s Friday deadline for its 32,000 employees to get vaccinated or face termination. The hospital enacted a mandatory vaccination policy back in August where employees should be vaccinated or an exemption by Oct. 29 and refusal will result in dismissal.

New Orleans, LA local news reported:

Small groups of Ochsner employees — 39 in Shreveport, 9 in Monroe and 48 in Lafayette — have taken the matter to separate courts, where they’ve argued that the mandate violates employees’ reasonable right to privacy to reject medical treatments.

A lower-court judge had previously dismissed the lawsuit from the Shreveport group. But in its ruling Thursday, the appeals court said the plaintiffs should be allowed a hearing and Ochsner may not fire or discipline employees over failing to comply with vaccine requirements in the meantime.

The ruling applies to employees at hospitals listed on the lawsuit, including Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport and Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport St. Mary. The plaintiffs are 20 registered nurses, four surgical technicians, a physician, a nurse practitioner, a respiratory therapist, a licensed practical nurse, a child life specialist and several others without listed medical credentials.
