Apparently, a judge just ordered the Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital to allow an 80-year old woman to be treated with Ivermectin. According to the family and attorney, the treatment saved the life of Judith Smentkiewicz. Although not yet approved, according to court documents, the woman's daughter referred to it as a “miracle drug,” as do her attorneys, Ralph C. Lorigo and Jon F. Minear. Apparently, a doctor ordered the drug off-label in the intensive care unit (ICU), and as she improved, more than likely due to the drug, she was moved to another unit, and the doctor there stepped in and disallowed the use of the drug. Family members immediately involved lawyers and legal action to resume treatment. The New York Supreme Court Judge Henry J. Nowak aligned with the family.
Low Chance of Survival
Although the Buffalo News journalist, Dan Herbeck, reported that the hospital officials gave their mom’s chance of survival at about 20% due to severe COVID-19 (she was on a ventilator), doctors also told the family that she more than likely would be on a ventilator in an intensive care unit for at least a month.
