Yesterday, we reported on a ‘severely ill’ Covid patient in Minnesota who was forced to move across the country to Texas in order to stay alive as the hospital threatened to turn off his ventilator.
“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.
Today, harrowing details were released about the Minnesota hospital that wanted to turn Quiner’s life support off and let him die. Doctors who were charged with Quiner’s care reportedly lectured Quiner’s family about his vaccination status before saying that he was going to die.
In one recorded phone call with Dr. Linda Soucie in which Quiner was fighting to keep Scott on the ventilator, Soucie told Quiner, “Unfortunately, if we could turn back time and he had gotten the vaccine, then he wouldn’t be here,” just after Soucie had told Quiner, “After three years, I think we’ve gotten pretty good at determining who’s going to make it and who’s not, and unfortunately Scott’s in that range of the group that is not going to make it.” Dr. Linda Souchie said.
After being transferred to a hospital in Texas, Quiner’s condition is already improving.
Currently, Holsten said Scott is “making tremendous progress.”
“Yesterday, Scott started following the doctor’s hands with his eyes, and now he’s blinking in response to questions,” Holsten said. “He was able to nod his head and move his legs for the nurse.” Marjorie Holsten, Quiner’s attorney said.
Dr. Robert Malone, a leading critic of the government’s response to Covid-19, said that there is a financial incentive for hospitals to commit patients, put them on ventilators, and even let them die.
“The numbers are quite large,” Malone told Rogan. “There’s something like a $3,000 basically death benefit to a hospital if it can be claimed to be COVID. There’s a financial incentive to call somebody COVID positive.”
The hospitals receive a bonus, Malone added, from the government if someone is hospitalized and able to be declared COVID positive.
“They also receive a bonus—I think the total is something like $30,000 in incentive—if somebody gets put on the vent,” Malone said. “Then they get a bonus if somebody is declared dead with COVID.”
