Covid Patient’s Life Saved After Judge Ordered Hospital To Treat With Ivermectin
A Hong Kong man visiting Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter’s first birthday found himself in the hospital with Covid in what became a life-threatening battle.
The grandfather, 71-year-old Sun Ng, is alive to tell the story thanks to a judge who respects freedom of choice and a man named Dr. Alan Bain, who was willing to prescribe him the controversial drug ivermectin.
In October, a hospital in the Chicago area refused to give Mr. Ng the Nobel Prize-winning, FDA-approved drug that his doctor prescribed him because Dr. Bain is not vaccinated for Covid.
Edward Hospital argued allowing Sun Ng to be treated with ivermectin could result in side effects, that it would violate their policies, and that a court forcing the issue would be “extraordinary” judicial overreach.
By November, Sun’s daughter Dr. Man Kwan Ng filed a lawsuit against the hospital in an attempt to have him treated with ivermectin as he was on a ventilator and not doing well.
A photograph of Ng showed the grandfather lying in the hospital as his health deteriorated.
The family attorney Kirstin Erickson told Fox 32, “Mr. Ng is as good as dead in the picture, which was taken on November 4. And at that point the hospital still wouldn’t give the ivermectin.”
In a November 5 decision, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton ruled, “I can’t think of a more extraordinary situation than when we are talking about a man’s life. I am not forcing this hospital to do anything other than to step aside. I am just asking—or not asking—I am ordering through the Court’s power to allow Dr. Bain to have the emergency privileges and administer this medicine.”
