Doctors Use Ingenious Techniques to Continue Sanctions


Although they have been ordered to continue working, specialists in Israeli hospitals seem determined to continue with their work actions, protesting scheduling and salary issues. In protest, several doctors tried to check themselves in as patients at Sheba, Meir and Beilinson Hospitals, claiming “exhaustion” - the rationale being that if they were not well, they could not be forced to work – allowing them to evade an order by the National Labor Court preventing them from striking.

At Meir Hospital in Kfar Sava, a group specialists said they would work, but that they were going on a hunger strike.
