A father and son have been engaged in a legal battle against Fauquier Health hospital in Warrenton, Virginia over the last few weeks after staff refused to give their wife and mother ivermectin to treat COVID-19.
Now, the hospital has finally allowed the woman, Kathy Davies, to be administered ivermectin by a family doctor after a court order and being found in contempt, facing fines up to $10,000 a day if they did not comply.
The judge has now vacated the order following the hospital’s compliance.
It has long been speculated that the drug, which is widely used around the world to treat parasitic illnesses and other diseases, could be used to treat the virus, but such speculations are considered to be not only unfounded, but dangerous, depending on who you ask.
The Daily Wire reported that Chris Davies father Donald Davies requested that Kathy Davies be administered the controversial medication when she was hospitalized and placed on a ventilator in October.
The hospital refused, launching a lengthy legal battle in which the court went as far as ordering a police escort be made available for Mrs. Davies’ family so they and the family doctor could give her the drug.
On December 6, the court determined that the patient had the right under Virginia law to try the drug or anything else prescribed by Dr. Martha Maturi, the doctor obtained by the family when the hospital initially refused to try ivermectin.
However, the next day, when son Chris, who also happens to be employed by the hospital as a radiology tech, went to give his mother the drug accompanied by a registered nurse, hospital executives barred them from entering the ICU where Mrs. Davies was receiving treatment.
This led to several discussions between the family’s and the hospital’s attorneys, and the hospital appeared ready to agree to allow Dr. Maturi to administer the drug before waiting until the last minute on Friday so that it would be another three days before a judge would hold the hospital in contempt, finally forcing them to comply with the court order.
Mrs. Davies has now been given ivermectrin and the contempt order vacated.
