Anita Clouse had sought to force Memorial Medical Center, part of Memorial Health System, to allow her husband, Randy Clouse, 61, to receive ivermectin, the State Journal-Register reported. Ralph Lorigo, a New York lawyer who represents Anita and has also taken on a bevy of other ivermectin cases, said in a court hearing that “she should have a right to try to save her husband.”
Last week, a Butler County judge ordered West Chester Hospital, part of the University of Cincinnati (UC Health) network, to provide Jeffrey Smith, 51, with ivermectin, the Ohio Capital Journal reported. In that case, Jeffrey’s wife, Julie Smith, found ivermectin on her own and filed suit against the hospital. Julie is also represented by Lorigo.
Court records in the case against West Chester Hospital further show that Julie Smith reached out to Fred Wagshul, MD, who prescribed ivermectin to her husband before the hospital refused to provide it, according to the Ohio Capital Journal. Wagshul is listed in the suit as a founding physician of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance, which as MedPage Today previously reported, has long promoted ivermectin.More Hospitals Sued Over Right to Try Ivermectin | MedPage Today
