New York Judge Saves 80-Year-Old COVID-19 Patient By Ordering Hospital To Give Her Ivermectin

UPDATED February 22, 2021 – Judith Smentkiewicz healthy, back at home after Ivermectin treatment.

WILLIAMSVILLE, NEW YORK — Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital refused to give 80-year-old Judith Smentkiewicz Ivermectin at her family’s request. So the family took the case to court, and won.

Smentkiewicz was on a ventilator and given a 20% chance to live on December 31, according to a report by the Buffalo News. Michael Smentkiewicz, Judith’s son, said he did a lot of research, and thought Ivermectin was the best option for his gravely-ill mother. Ivermectin has shown to be highly effective in treating early and late stage COVID-19 patients. It has also shown to be effective as a prophylaxis. Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic drug often used to treat lice.

Ms. Smentkiewicz got her first dose of Ivermectin on January 2. She made a “complete turnaround.” Smentkiewicz was taken off the ventilator, and transferred out of the intensive care unit within 48 hours, according to court documents. But doctors in the new unit refused to give her anymore doses of Ivermectin. Michael and his sister Michelle Kulbacki took the hospital to court.

Right to choose upheld

The family filed an emergency injunction in the New York Supreme Court. Judge Henry J. Nowak decided the case had merit and heard it immediately. Michael J. Roach, attorney of Kaleida Health, which owns Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, opposed the injunction. He argued that doctors, and not judges, should make medical decisions for patients. The judge was not convinced. He immediately ordered the hospital to resume administration of Ivermectin once the Smentkiewicz’s family doctor wrote a prescription.

Michael Smentkiewicz said he was “astounded” that the family had to take such drastic measures to choose their medical treatment options. The good news is that his mother is improving everyday. Michael spoke to his mother for the first time in several weeks when she called him from her hospital bed. He said her voice was raspy, but she was sitting up and improving everyday. Doctors told him that his mother’s condition is far better than it was two weeks ago and that she is likely to recover completely.

NIH, Anthony Fauci forced to recognize Ivermectin

There is a concerted effort by the National Institutes of Health and infectious disease director, Dr. Anthony Fauci, to suppress all treatments for COVID-19 except the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA shots. The agency previously held the position that Ivermectin was ineffective and should not be used to treat COVID-19. They have updated their guidance, seemingly in response to the growing research surrounding the drug.

The NIH issued a statement last Thursday saying it no longer holds a position for or against the use of Ivermectin to treat COVID-19. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) applauded the new direction of the NIH. Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of AAPS, said in a press release, “perhaps with this change, patients won’t need a court order to get a lifesaving drug.”

This is multi level complicit genocide…!!!

This rises to the level of “Crimes Against Humanity” and should proceed as such with appropriate indictements at every top level organization that caused or promoted it massive deaths, numbers suffering never seen in history = all either outrightly promulgated or by ommissions of vital known facts and truths…!!!

The masterminds right up to the top Davos Globalist’s who’s moneys and influence sponsored such – must be pried out of their mansions no different then Dr. Mengele and his sponsors as being equivalent to financiers of their promoted Atheist Marxist Communism via Lenin· Stalin· Mao· N.Korea· PolPot· Edi Amien· Castro· ETC
It’s now- CCP· Chavez· Soros· Gates+Faux-ci· WHO/NIH/CDC/UN+EU=etc.

This time our human history must be cleansed of these GODLESS MONSTER’S by all “WE the People” whom make up humanity worldwide…!!!

Their NWO – ReSet with “required mass exterminations” must be stopped cold and THEY ALL made to answer to with serious consequences.
This includes the entire “City of London” / Vatican / District of Columbia Triangle w/its DeepState IMF – World Bank – FED satellite branche’s – the UN + sister EU being intended NWO “World Infection Sites” fully seen in Agenda 21 + 2030 protocols…!!!

This legal cleansing along with complicit politicians, so called leaders, judges, “official’s”, media, AMA and medical people = esp ALL Pharma·pseutical Corps. and their people that facilitated it all at various well paid off levels to do it and to stay silent..!!!

I just copied your comment because you’ve included a great number of responsible parties for this massive genocide.
How many MILLIONS will they have murdered?
I don’t believe people have vaccinated to the numbers that the news reports – they wouldn’t be getting so DESPERATE about pushing their genocide, if so. That are acting FRANTIC, trying to push this nastiness before people wake up and SEE it.
What puzzles me is WHY the entire world has not ALREADY seen.
It’s SO UTTERLY IN OUR FACES if people are paying any attention at all.
Thank you for sharing info here. People like us, who KNOW the Truth, along with the help of God, are the only barrier between humanity being saved and total annihilation.

Ro, thank God for Brian doing such a good job on this site, or WE would no be as confidant in our info.
The ones horrified by fake news or “Dead-u-cation”- (morgues filling up world-wide)-heard/seen by couch-captive audiences.
They were so horrified, & believed every problem was “blame/hate Trump, they bought media’s WHOLE scoop-by design.

Once people have the shot, something changes in them: not only a pride issue of “what’s in. MY body” ” MY decisions are right”-they won’t be confused by or dare entertain new info, to their own detriment.
“Better is a young, foolish child than an old & wise king who will no longer be admonished.”

They’d rather be “Right” than entertain the idea they may not have had all the facts.
Fouci is a nauseating piece of Commie work!!

Fauci’s favorite treatment is the very expensive and less effective Remdesivir manufactured by a company with which he has a relationship. His obstruction has killed people.

Ivermectin. Inexpensive and effective. Fraud Fauci needs to be ignored.

If you have issues, at least make an attempt to be given Ivermectin if Covid-19 enters your life. It works and does probably need a few days dosing.

I have never yet heard of any vaccine side effects on TV other than the RN who fainted right after, which I have read may have died…but no further mention of her via the media, ie. how she was days after she fainted

No, mainstream media is NOT covering these deaths or after effects! If you are in the USA, the CDC division called “VAERS” (Vaccine After Effects Reporting Site) keeps up with those that are reported. But
it’s VOLUNTARY & many people don’t even know to report! The CDC website is a beast to maneuver, but you can go to to see USA totals. It collates ALL vaccine side effects, so scroll down & click on the “Covid” section. Detailed reports are below the red & white report.

I’ve taken Ivermectin paste meant for horses with no ill effects every three days for a month. I adjusted the syringe to my body weight and squirted it into some high fat Greek yoghurt. Not perhaps optimal but if a prescription is not available or is too expensive, it may work. I’ve seen no downside to this.

I have been taking my horses’ ivermectin for the past week dosing by weight. It’s a shame we are denied access to the treatments that really work (including hydroxy).

My husband and I had covid recently. He was still running a fever after 10 days and I was having long-haul symptoms ( fatigue, night sweats, etc). After 48 hours on ivermectin we both completely recovered ( the total course was 5 days).

“My husband and I had covid recently”

It’s that covid envy we talked about.

If you were insulated from the non-stop propaganda streaming from the altar in your living room (TV), you would have said that you are feeling little bit under the weather, took some garlic soup, drank tea with lemon and then moved on.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
