Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton, Virginia denied Ivermectin, an antiparasitic drug that shows strong indications against COVID-19, to 63-year-old Kathleen Davies, even as she approached death, Mary Beth Pfeiffer reported on Substack.
The hospital finally administered the drug on Dec. 13, six days after Circuit Court Judge James P. Fisher ordered the hospital to comply with the wishes of Davies’ family.
When the hospital refused to comply with Fisher’s order to administer Ivermectin, dated Dec. 7, he ruled the hospital “in contempt for needlessly interposing requirements that stand in the way” of the drug’s use.
He threatened the hospital with a $10,000 fine. The prospect of lost profit, not the potential loss of the patient’s life, motivated the hospital to give Ivermectin.
Fisher cited federal and Virginia laws that guarantees a patient’s right to try all available medical options when he or she faces the risk of death.
He wrote that the hospital’s “failure to accommodate this critical patient’s health care wishes” for nearly a week after the court order “is particularly egregious.”
Several anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antiparasitic drugs, including Hydroxychloroquine, Remdesivir, and Ivermectin have all been shown to reduce severe COVID-19 symptoms, especially when supplemented with vitamins and minerals.
Unfortunately, these early-treatment options lose efficacy once the patient begins to experience severe symptoms, like failing respiration, though hope remains for Davies.
Fauquier Hospital failed to give her Ivermectin for 65 days after admitting her, 41 days after placing her on a ventilator, and six days after Fisher ordered the hospital to comply with state and federal laws as well as the patient and family’s wishes.
“This judge is the hero. He had the guts. He had the stamina. He had the willingness to enforce what he said,” said Ralph Lorigo, the attorney who represented Davies.
“This woman is today forty-two days on a vent,” he said. “She needs everyone’s prayers.”
In a Dec. 13 interview on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Dr. Peter A. McCullough described the concerted effort in the medical establishment to deny life-saving early-treatment options, like Ivermectin, in order to increase hospitalizations, vaccinations, and thus profit.
