A judge in Florida, upon deciding that it was wholly inappropriate for him to be the determining factor in the level of dosage of Ivermectin for a severely ill woman, has once again rejected, for the second time in the past three days, a petition from the husband of the ill woman that was requesting that the Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center administer Ivermectin.
James Nutt, a Palm Beach County Circuit Judge, put forth a request that Ryan Drock, the panicked Florida man, and the hospital in quest attempt to resolve the issues amongst themselves, arguing, “The parties are directed to confer and, if possible, agree how this matter can expeditiously proceed to final resolution,” reported The Palm Beach Post, going on to add, “If the correct legal papers are ‘squared away,’ Nutt said he would be willing to hold a hearing to explore why Drock, who is in the intensive-care unit tethered to oxygen, might benefit from ivermectin.”
As stated by the FDA, all of the currently available data points towards the fact that Ivermectin does not appear to be effective against COVID-19 at all.
As reported by The Daily Beast:
Though Nutt suggested he would consider a request for a temporary injunction “given the gravity and urgency of the case,” he hinted that it could also be unsuccessful in court. “It is not a right to substitute one’s judgment as to which treatments must [be] made available by others,” said the judge. “There is no right, constitutional or otherwise, of a patient to substitute one’s judgment for a medical professional.”
Nutt stated this past Friday at a hearing, “So every drug combination cocktail or procedure that is debated as to its efficacy … the hospital is going to be taken to court? It’s problematic where this is going.”
Jake Huxtable, the attorney for Drock, stated, “This woman is sitting on her deathbed. She flatlined a couple of days ago and they revived her. But the hospital is out of options.”
“Huxtable tried to persuade Nutt to hold the hospital to its previous promise to administer the drug. While an agreement was hashed out, Huxtable said it fell apart when a dispute arose over the dosage Drock would receive,” continued the Palm Beach Post in a report put out on Friday.
This past month, Bruce Anderson, a Circuit Judge, placed an order on a Jacksonville hospital to administer Ivermectin to a patient, stating that its absence could cause “irreparable harm” to the patient in the wake of requests from the patient’s husband, explained the Palm Beach Post.
As reported by The Daily Wire:
A 75-year-old New York man died last weekend after a hospital refused to give him the drug Ivermectin in a last-ditch effort to save his life, despite an order from a judge, an exclusive report from News10NBC’s Jennifer Lewke revealed.
Although Jeremy L. Carter was vaccinated against COVID-19, he still caught the virus at the end of August, Lewke detailed. He became sick enough to be hospitalized at Rochester General Hospital and continued to deteriorate to the point where he was placed on a ventilator.
After consulting with Carter’s primary care doctor, Carter and his daughter Jill Alvarado wanted to try Ivermectin. Although the drug is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat COVID-19, and the FDA has explicitly warned against using it, some doctors have prescribed Ivermectin for COVID-19 patients.
However, the hospital refused to administer the drug to Carter, even though the family said they would gladly sign away any right to file a malpractice lawsuit.
