“A Minnesota man battling COVID-19 has been transferred to a Texas hospital after a judge ruled that he cannot be taken off life support.
Scott Quiner, 55, a father-of-three, contracted COVID-19 in October and was put on a ventilator at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, in November. His wife, Anne Quiner, was reportedly told by doctors that his ventilator would be switched off on Jan. 13 after he suffered lung failure.” After a court battle with the hospital, the man was transferred, the Epoch Times reported.
It was revealed that the hospital berated him for not getting a vaccine and saw his case as hopeless. The Minnesota hospital refused him alternate treatment and planned to take him off life support until his family sued. The judge ruled in Quiner’s favor and he was transferred to a Texas hospital. Today, Quiner passed away, with the Texas hospital claiming that they got him ‘too late’. The Epoch Times Reports-
“Anne Quiner’s husband Scott died in an undisclosed Texas hospital on Jan. 22 after Anne sought legal counsel to have him transferred out of Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, where doctors planned to take Scott off life support.
“We got him too late in the process,” Quiner’s lawyer, Marjorie Holsten, told The Epoch Times. “We should have gotten him sooner. He was malnourished, dehydrated, and 30 pounds underweight.”
Holsten said that doctors in Texas reported that they were shocked by Scott’s depleted condition when he finally arrived.
Doctors at Mercy Hospital told Quiner they were taking Scott off his ventilator because they believed he would not recover due to what they said were his “destroyed lungs from COVID pneumonia,” and that their attempts at decreasing sedation only caused him pain.
“Anne is devastated,” Holsten said.”
