A woman took to Twitter to express her displeasure with Toronto hospital staff doing their jobs– but it hasn’t quite gone the way she was hoping.

The video, which was posted on Saturday at around 11:14 p.m., showed medical staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital denying her treatment for a broken finger because she refused to wear a mask.

The staff can be heard on the video telling the woman that the Ministry of Health has a policy to not treat anyone unless they’re wearing a face covering.

The video has now gone viral online with many condemning her behaviour in the comments.

One Twitter user said, “you probably haven’t heard, but there’s a wee bit of a pandemic happening these days.”

The woman said in the post that she was later escorted out of the hospital by three security guards.
