Orlando Doctor who treated Orlando shooting victims still wears bloodstained shoes to work 6 weeks after (photos)

Doctor Joshua Corsa, who treated Orlando victims and posted a haunting photo of his crimson sneakers on Facebook alongside an emotional post, is still wearing the blood stained sneakers six weeks after the Orlando massacre and says he will keep wearing them until the last patient leaves the hospital.

In June, 49 people were killed and dozens more wounded in the mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando and Dr. Joshua Corsa, a senior resident at Orlando Regional Medical Center, published a photo of his bloody sneakers and wrote;

“On these shoes, soaked between its fibers, is the blood of 54 innocent human beings,” Corsa exaggerated as only half of the wounded victims were treated at the hospital where he works.
Nine patients died shortly after arriving at the hospital. Most others were discharged within weeks. Another was discharged this week, leaving one person in critical condition and the doctor says he’ll keep wearing the shoes till the last one is discharged.
‘I’m optimistic that (the patient) will get better and I don’t have to wear them for too much longer,’ Corsa told the Orlando Sentinel. ‘Not that it’s any burden by any stretch.’ 
‘It’s going to be a year and everything is probably still going to be incredibly fresh in my mind,’ he said, adding, ‘you can’t go through anything like this, whether you’re a victim, a responder or in my case just a guy in the hospital helping out, and not be changed by it.’

Since his Facebook posting and media coverage, Corsa said he’s received letters, cards and gifts from different people .
‘I’ve heard from people in Boston and Sandy Hook and San Bernardino for this very unfortunate and exclusive club that no one wants to be a part of,’ he said. ‘They’ve just reached out, given me advice and asked how they can help.’
