Virginia Judge Holds Hospital in Contempt for Denying Ivermectin to Sick COVID Patient


This latest development could be crucial going forward in the establishment of health freedom in the United States. 

Earlier this week a Virginia judge found Fauquier Hospital in contempt of court for trying to deny a COVID-19 patient a prescription for Ivermectin. The hospital has since said it will comply with the order.

The lawsuit against the hospital was filed on behalf of patient Kathleen Davies, and her son Christopher told the Fauquier Times that two doses of Ivermectin were administered to his mother after Judge James. P. Fisher, of the 20th Judicial Court of Virginia, signed an order holding Fauquier Hospital in contempt of court for “needlessly interposing requirements that stand in the way of the patient’s desired physician administering investigational drugs as part of the Health Care Decisions Act and the federal and state Right to Try Acts.”

The judged ordered that the hospital had to pay “$10,000 per day retroactive to the date of the court’s injunction order filing,” for each day the hospital does not allow Davies to take Ivermectin.

Update as of 3 p.m. ET Wednesday: A spokesperson for Virginia’s Fauquier Hospital told The Epoch Times on Wednesday that it “would like to correct the misinformation regarding the family who disagreed with the clinical course of treatment recommended by our physicians for their family member.”

“As outlined in the court documents, a patient’s family filed a petition seeking to compel our hospital to administer medication prescribed by an outside physician. This physician had no privileges to practice medicine at our hospital,” according to the spokesperson.

They continued to say that it “is unable to administer medications to our patients without a valid order from a physician on our medical staff” and that “doing so would violate standard hospital practice and Virginia law.”

“That said, our team has worked around the clock to cooperate with the patient’s family and the Court to identify potential viable solutions, including to make a reasonable attempt to transfer the patient’s care to their preferred physician, which has since happened,” the spokesperson said, adding that “despite what has been shared online, we believe that we have navigated these complexities as swiftly as possible and have remained in compliance with standard hospital practice, including federal and state regulations, throughout this matter.”
