Jeremy L. Carter, 75, who was fully vaccinated, died last weekend after a hospital rejected to give him the drug Ivermectin in a last-ditch effort to save his life, despite an order from a judge.
The New York man tested positive for COVID-19 on Aug. 28. Less than a week later, he was admitted to Rochester General Hospital where doctors started COVID-19 treatment which included Remdesivir and Dexamethasone.
Unfortunately, the treatments did not work and his health continued to deteriorate, according to News10NBC.
Carter was transferred to ICU and put on a ventilator on Sept. 20 after exhausting all COVID-19 treatments. Jill Alvarado, Carter’s daughter, began looking into alternative treatments. She discovered the drug Ivermectin, which is commonly used to treat parasitic worm infections, head lice, and skin conditions.
Carter and his daughter Jill Alvarado decided to try Ivermectin after consulting with Carter’s primary care physician. Although the drug is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat COVID-19, some doctors have prescribed Ivermectin for COVID-19 patients.
The hospital, however, refused to give Carter the drug, despite the fact that Carter’s family said they would gladly sign away their right to file a malpractice lawsuit.
Family of Jeremy L. Carter sued Rochester General Hospital to administer Ivermectin
Alvarado was forced to sue Rochester Regional Health, which includes Rochester General Hospital, and she was successful. Finally, a judge ruled in favor of the family, ordering the hospital to handle the situation.
Rochester General Hospital, on the other hand, refused. According to Lewke’s report, Rochester Regional Health filed an appeal on Saturday, and a hearing was set for Monday.
Carter passed away on Sunday.
Attorney Ralph Lorigo, who sued Rochester Regional Health on behalf of Carter, said he’s filed dozens of lawsuits against health systems in western New York alone over the past few months.
“Every case I have is a person in a hospital dying,” he said, “what is the harm if a hospital is done with its protocol?”
Lorigo has already filed three suits against Rochester Regional Health to get them to administer Ivermectin, including Carter’s suit.
“Each of those times we were successful and those people went home. In this situation we sued, we got a court order and the hospital refused to administer the Ivermectin,” the attorney explained.
