A doctor at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minnesota did not show much mercy towards the wife of a dying patient.
Dr. Linda Soucie was reportedly recorded talking with Anne Quiner as she was fighting to save the life of her husband, Scott. He was in Mercy’s care with COVID-19 complications.
“Unfortunately, if we could turn back time and he had gotten the vaccine, then he wouldn’t be here,” Soucie reportedly 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.”
YouTube has removed the video, which they claim violates their community guidelines. It is unclear whether they mean COVID-19 off-messaging videos or recorded conversations.
A recorded conference call is still up on YouTube that includes an explanation from a Mercy doctor, whose name was difficult to understand, about why they planned to end support for Scott Quiner.
“We don’t believe ongoing support will allow him to breathe independently,” the Mercy doctor said. “The chance that he will actually leave the hospital is exceedingly low at this time.”
The Mercy doctor added they would take him off the ventilator on Jan. 13. In his opinion, Mr. Quiner had “destroyed lungs from COVID pneumonia,” from which he was not expected to recover. He added that hospital attempts at decreasing sedation only caused the patient more pain.
Quiner’s attorney, Marjorie Holsten, filed a motion for a temporary restraining order to keep Quiner on a ventilator, the Epoch Times reported.
Mercy Hospital attorneys objected to the restraining order, claiming Quiner’s position was not supported by medical science, and asked for their own order allowing them to remove the patient from the ventilator.
The judge reportedly issued the restraining order, saying irreparable harm would result if not issued, which Holsten said was easy to establish because if Quiner had been taken off support, he would have died.
The Epoch Times reported the dying man was transferred from the Minnesota hospital to an undisclosed Texas hospital.
Both Holsten and Quiner reportedly said doctors in Texas were “horrified” by Scott’s condition when he arrived.
“One doctor said he didn’t know how Scott made it out of that hospital alive,” Quiner said. “He looked at his chart and said, ‘I can’t believe the heavy, sedating drugs they put him on.’”
Dr. Robert Malone, who claims to have invented mRNA vaccination in the 1980s, appeared on a recent episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast, which has since been banned from many social media platforms.
The doctor explained the large financial incentives provided to hospitals for treating COVID-19 patients, which is detailed in the Epoch Times report.
The Stew Peters Show is the podcast credited with convincing Mercy Hospital to authorize the transfer to another hospital after more than 300,000 listeners reportedly flooded phone lines at the hospital and its attorney’s office.
