The hospital tried their damndest to make sure this man died of Covid, but thankfully a sane judge would not allow it:
Sun Ng, 71, who was visiting the United States from Hong Kong to celebrate his granddaughter’s first birthday, became ill with COVID-19 and within days was close to death. He was hospitalized on Oct. 14 at Edward Hospital, in Naperville, Illinois, a part of the Edward-Elmhurst Health system. His condition worsened dramatically and he was intubated and placed on a ventilator a few days later.
Ng’s only child, Man Kwan Ng, who holds a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering, did her own research and decided that her father should take ivermectin, which some medical doctors believe is effective against COVID-19, despite the FDA’s guidance to the contrary.
But against the daughter’s wishes, the hospital refused to administer ivermectin and denied access to a physician willing to administer it.
No, the hospital said. He MUST die of Covid.
The daughter went to court on her father’s behalf and on Nov. 1, Judge Paul M. Fullerton of the Circuit Court of DuPage County granted a temporary restraining order requiring the hospital to allow ivermectin to be given to the patient. The hospital refused to comply with the court order.
At a subsequent court hearing on Nov. 5, Fullerton said one physician who testified described Sun Ng as “basically on his death bed,” with a mere 10 to 15 percent chance of survival. Ivermectin can have minor side effects such as dizziness, itchy skin, and diarrhea at the dosage suggested for Ng, but the “risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold,” Fullerton said.
The judge issued a preliminary injunction that day directing the hospital to “immediately allow … temporary emergency privileges” to Ng’s physician, Dr. Alan Bain, “solely to administer Ivermectin to this patient.”
The hospital resisted the order on Nov. 6 and 7, denying Bain access to his patient. The hospital claimed that it couldn’t let Bain in because he wasn’t vaccinated against COVID-19 and that its chief medical officer wasn’t available to “proctor” Bain administering ivermectin.
I don’t throw the word “evil” around lightly, but this hospital is evil.
This man was at death’s door, and still the hospital would not allow him to be treated with Ivermectin.
Ivermectin is safe. It’s been administered billions of times around the globe for decades.
It was not going to kill this man. He was probably going to die anyway.
But still: NO IVERMECTIN.
Thankfully, this story has a happy ending:
The daughter’s attorneys filed an emergency report with the court on Nov. 8 and Fullerton heard from both sides. The judge admonished the hospital and restated that it must allow Bain inside over a period of 15 days to do his job. When the hospital filed a motion to stay the order, Fullerton denied it, again directing the facility to comply.
The ivermectin appears to have worked, and Sun Ng has recovered from COVID-19. He was discharged by the hospital on Nov. 27.
“My father’s recovery is amazing,” his daughter, Man Kwan Ng, said in a statement.
“My father is a tough man. He was working so hard to survive, and of course, with God’s holding hands. He weaned off oxygen about three days after moving out of the ICU. He started oral feeding before hospital discharge. He returned home without carrying a bottle of oxygen and a feeding tube installed to his stomach. He can now stand with a walker at the bedside and practice stepping. After being sedated for a month on a ventilator in ICU, his performance is beyond our expectations. Praise the Lord.”
Attorney Erickson said the “happy” end result here provides “hope for the nation.”
“We get calls from all over the place,” she told The Epoch Times.
“People that want to sue hospitals after someone’s passed, they wanted to get the medicine and couldn’t. Obviously, that’s a different, difficult case because a medical malpractice case is very difficult.”
People just want to do what’s best for their family members and “find ivermectin themselves” and have it on hand “and use it when someone starts to develop symptoms,” Erickson said.
She said her legal team and client were “really thankful” that Ng recovered and “we salute” Judge Fullerton, Dr. Bain, and others, as well as the hospital for abiding by the court order in the end.
While I am very happy that this man was able to finally, after pulling teeth, get treated with Ivermectin and survive, it is utterly appalling how vehemently the hospital resisted the judge’s orders.
How can you even call yourself a hospital?
I wonder how many people have died due to intransigent hospitals refusing to treat them with Ivermectin?
“iT’s nOt fDa aPpRoVeD!”
How many people has the FDA killed because of its corruption and fealty to Big Pharma?
And correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe there was a law passed not too long ago called “The Right to Try,” which basically says that if you’re terminally ill, and you’ve exhausted all the approved treatment methods and nothing has worked, then essentially doctors have legal immunity and can “try” unapproved or experimental treatments to see if any of them might just work.
It’s basically the medical Hail Mary law.
It’s the, “Well, he’s going to die anyway, why not?” law.
It’s there on the FDA’s website:
The Right to Try Act, or the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act, was signed into law May 30, 2018. This law is another way for patients who have been diagnosed with life-threatening diseases or conditions who have tried all approved treatment options and who are unable to participate in a clinical trial to access certain unapproved treatments.
How is Ivermectin not covered by this law?
Or, maybe it is, and hospitals just ignore it.
If that’s the case, then why not?
It should be a simple and straightforward case: a patient is at death’s door, and he says, “Look, try whatever you want, if it goes wrong, I’ll make sure to tell my family not to sue. You won’t get a malpractice suit. Just do whatever you want.”
I don’t know. Seems pretty cut and dry to me. But then again, our healthcare system is fucked six ways to Sunday.
