Guy who demanded quack medicine has died...

Even money the family will now sue the hospital.

COVID-19 patient dies amid familyís legal battle to get him ivermectin

SUGAR LAND, Texas (KTRK) - A 74-year-old COVID patient in Texas, who was at the center of a legal battle over his hospital treatment, has died.

Pete Lopez, 74, died at Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital after battling COVID-19 for almost a month. The Vietnam War veteran was put on a ventilator Aug. 19.

Lopezís family sued the hospital after it refused to give him the drug ivermectin, which is a de-worming drug primarily used in large animals like cows and horses. A judge ordered the hospital to administer the drug, but according to the family, the hospital still refused.

1. Now they will sue the hospital and in TX could easily win if one of the TT* judges is in charge.

Total assholes that they are.

TT = Texas Taliban

8. Judge: "Doctor, is the use of ivermectin for treating COVID-19 infection considered

standard-of-care in the practice of medicine?"

Doctor: "No, Your Honor."

Judge: "Case dismissed."

13. Unless they get some hillbilly hangin' judge.

I don't know if it is like this anymore, but in Texas, judges were once elected to the bench, and no training in the law was required. The judge who presided at the trial of Jack Ruby, who killed Kennedy's assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, was just a good ole boy who won an election to the judgeship. A reading of the trial transcript reveals his hopeless incompetence as a trial judge.

18. Texas put in medical malpractice torte reform in 2003

with low limit on "pain and suffering" that can be paid out. Lawyers won't usually go after medical malpractice because the payout is not worth the time and expense. I found this out through the experience of a friend of mine.

it hasn't reduced the premiums Doctor's pay for malpractice insurance one dime.

"Tort reform" was just another republican scam to keep bad Doctors practicing, and to put more campaign cash in politicians' pockets.

3. Why did he go to the hospital? If it was prescribed, he could have taken it at home.

Hospitals follow strict protocols for treatment, if you want alternative medicine the hospital is not the place to go.

If he and his family were unhappy with the care he was receiving then the family should have had him transferred to a facility that would care for him the way they wished.

You know, free markets and all that stuff.

customers who won't fit in a standard sized kennel. I'm guessing this man was too large for a veterinarian's 2 1/2 ft. X 3 ft. cage.

It they don't give it to me and I die, my family can sue. If they do give it to me and I die, my family can sue. A win-win.

and that ivermectin was the way to go thereby delaying more traditional treatment.


*Family won't say if he was vaxxed so I'm just assuming not.

Yes, because it is a hospital not a large animal vet clinic.

So a Texas dumb ass who refused the vaccine and then he got sick and died.

I thought at some point the marks would wake up to that simple fact but... I guess not. That only means one thing... At some point the virus will be declared a weapon of the left that is targeting them for their politics. I have no doubt that CT is coming to a magat near you soon.

The person was given the ivermectin and she did recover, but it could have been just a coincidence.

But donít care that this fucker is dead. One less brain dead Republican voter. Would not care if it took his wife.

Every republican I know is vaccinated. But then a few of them are no longer republicans and they are co-workers. Not real friends. And I donít hang with evangelicals or hard core right wing folks. Avoid them like the plague.
