New York Judges Are Now Deciding Which COVID Patients Live Or Die…


After a woman sued a hospital for not providing ivermectin for her gravely ill husband, a Manhattan judge has ruled NOT to force the hospital to provide the safe, effective treatment.

Court documents reportedly state Benjamin Chernyavsky has been on “death’s doorstep” since getting COVID-19 last month and Mount Sinai Hospital refused to treat him with ivermectin.

On January 26th, Erika Quintero-Sherry filed a civil suit against Mount Sinai Hospital regarding the treatment of her husband Benjamin Chernyavsky’s COVID diagnosis, which said civil suit also requested an emergency order that the hospital administer Ivermectin to her husband.

Earlier in February, following two days of hearing arguments presented by the plaintiff and defendants, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lynn Kotler ruled in favor of the hospital and decided not to force the hospital to administer Ivermectin to Chernyavsky.

Judge Kotler apparently called the arguments and evidence presented by Quintero-Sherry “paltry,” further claiming that to compel the hospital to give her husband Ivermectin would go against the recommendations of doctors at the hospital and allegedly put him at greater risk of harm.

According to The New York Post:

Kotler’s Tuesday decision reads, “Plaintiff would have this court order defendants to administer an unapproved treatment to her husband against defendants’ medical opinion rendered in the independent exercise of their professional judgment,”

 “Indeed, the record reveals that if prescribed ivermectin, Mr. Chernyavsky’s condition may very well worsen.”

“The prevailing view in the medical community … is that ivermectin should not be prescribed,” Kotler said, noting that that is the opinion of the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and many other medical associations.

“Plaintiff’s paltry showing is insufficient to overcome the mountain of evidence showing that ivermectin is not presently safe or effective in the treatment of COVID-19,” Kotler wrote.

Kotler also noted testimony from a Mount Sinai doctor that Chernyavsky was likely no longer infected with COVID-19, but rather “now must recover from the effects the disease has had on his body and organs.”

While the judge did not grant the emergency motion, the rest of the case must still play out in court.

“Mount Sinai is committed to providing the highest quality care to all of our patients and uses evidence-based data in our clinical decision-making,” a hospital spokesperson said in a statement. “We are pleased with the judge’s decision to sustain the decisions of our clinicians to refrain from using ivermectin for treatment of COVID -19.”
