Another Hospital Sued For Refusing Use Of Ivermectin

The Indianapolis Star reports:

A woman is suing Ascension St. Vincent hospital because doctors are refusing to administer a controversial COVID-19 treatment to her dying mother.

Megan Bournique’s mother Kimberly Eliot faces “very little chance of survival” as she struggles with the virus in the hospital’s intensive care unit, according to the lawsuit. Bournique wants doctors there to give her mom ivermectin, an anti-parasite medication the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has advised the public not to use as a treatment for COVID-19.

The emergency lawsuit asks a judge to intervene and order the Indianapolis hospital to respect a prescription for ivermectin issued to Eliot by a physician assistant named Maria Carson, according to the lawsuit.
