According to Worldometer, there have been more than 1.1 million deaths in the U.S. due to COVID-19. The real question is: How many people have died from COVID vs. how many have died due to the hospital protocols instituted around the nation for the treatment of COVID? Also, while people are hospitalized, what role does a healthcare power of attorney have? What about hospitals that have denied treatment through drugs such as Ivermectin? Can a hospital be ordered to allow a doctor to administer Ivermectin at the request of the family or the person acting as medical power of attorney?
On January 17, Karen Mueller will be arguing before the Wisconsin Supreme Court in the case of Allen Gahl v. Aurora Health Care, Inc. Karen is the founder and general counsel for the Amos Center for Justice and Liberty.
Allen Gahl is the nephew of, and medical power of attorney for, John Zingsheim. John became the focus of this case in October of 2021. He was admitted to Aurora Summit Hospital in Waukesha County where he was diagnosed with COVID. He wanted to be given Ivermectin, so Allen began requesting that from the hospital, however, they refused.
In a two day conference hearing with lawyers, a judge decided that John had a right to get Ivermectin as long as it was an outside doctor that the family found that could be credentialed, enter the hospital, and administer the Ivermectin.
Before the order could be fulfilled, the appellate court intervened and stayed the order on the granting of the Ivermectin.
Karen then appealed to the Wisconsin Supreme Court on a bypass request. In a 4-3 decision, the court declined to hear the case so it ended up back in the appellate court.
This case could impact many listeners, so become informed by reviewing this important edition of Crosstalk.
