This part of the story happens in Chapters 1 and 2 of the book.

In the end, what happens to Kemmerich's boots is that Muller gets them.  He had been wanting them and asking for them.  He and Paul eventually decide that it makes more sense for Muller to have them than for some hospital orderly to steal them after Kemmerich dies.

As for the doctors, the understand that Kemmerich is not going to live.  Towards the end, in Chapter 2, they refuse to come to see him because there is no real point in it.
