On Monday, the doctors staged a walkout in a southern Florida Hospital. They did the protests to send a message that they were treating too many unvaccinated coronavirus patients. The doctors didn’t refuse a single patient, so they created the walkout to message the unvaccinated Americans.
One reporter stated that 85% of the ICU beds in Florida hospitals were complete, and the others were beyond capacity. Precisely because of that, some people wonder why the doctors went out to the streets when they have so many jobs to do.

New York Post covered the story:
A group of South Florida doctors walked out of their hospital on Monday to protest the surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations among the unvaccinated.
The doctors walked out just before sunrise in an effort to encourage residents to get the COVID-19 vaccine, saying they are fatigued from working so hard during the latest surge.
“We are exhausted. Our patience and resources are running low and we need your help,” Dr. Rupesh Dharia from Palm Beach Internal Medicine told NBC 8.

On Morning Joe, we could see that the doctors stood there for a couple of minutes.

Daily Caller reported that some of the doctors left their shifts and went outside.
The doctors in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, said they want people to recognize the value of vaccines and ignore misinformation about the safety and effectiveness of the shots. Florida’s ICU units are reportedly at 85% capacity, and the state is experiencing a surge of 21% in cases and 28% in hospitalizations in the last 14 days.
“It’s incredibly frustrating, because we know vaccines are safe and effective,” said emergency room doctor JT Snarski in an interview with “Morning Joe” Monday morning. “Vaccines are safe, and we need to get our communities vaccinated.”
Some of the doctors walked out in the middle of their shifts, MSNBC reported. 72% of Floridians aged 12 and over have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and the state’s vaccination rate has more than doubled in the last month.

Twitter users emphasized that the doctors didn’t refuse anyone treatment. They walked outside to protest while they were treating unvaccinated coronavirus-infected patients.
I don't believe for a second that this actually happened. https://t.co/Ifv5Np2cli

Deleted this tweet because while the story was framed as a “walkout” on MSNBC & elsewhere, in fact the doctors stepped out for a “symbolic protest” to encourage the community to get vaccinated.

It was a symbolic protest where 75 doctors could walk together for a couple of minutes, but it left people wondering and many unanswered questions.
If the hospital was flooded with patients and lacked ventilators and beds, the doctors aren’t treating the people right. What were the patients doing while the doctors were protesting?
If 75 doctors have time to walk out of work they have time to treat patients. https://t.co/5gieG4HCXG

Doctors in south Florida walk out to protest treating unvaccinated patients.
If you refuse to treat people because they don’t live their lives the way you want them to, you shouldn’t be a freaking doctor!!!
