Doctor Restrained, Put Into Solitary Confinement After Advocating For Mistreated COVID Patient
BREAKING! Sarasota, FL - Dr. Stephen Guffanti was in the emergency department at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where he shared a room with a fellow COVID-19 diagnosed patient.

As a result of his advocacy, Dr. Guffanti reports he was removed from the room, put into 4-point restraints and put into solitary confinement by hospital staff for 4 hours before signing out "against medical advice".
A press conference is scheduled to be held at Sarasota Memorial Hospital on Friday, August 13, 2021 at 12 PM Eastern Time.
