His wife says that Buffalo, Minn. The man, whose wife went to court to block Alina Health Hospital from being removed from ventilators, is showing signs of improvement at the Houston hospital. Scott Quiner tested positive with COVID in late October. His wife has said that he was not vaccinated.
Anne Quiner is taking her frustrations with her husband’s care at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids to a “court of public opinion,” her attorney, Marjorie Holstein, said Thursday, conservative talk show host Glenn Beck.
“What we are showing the world is that Scott was close to death because of the protocol used in that hospital,” Holstein said. “But now he is recovering. He is getting better. We are not planning the funeral. We are planning to release him at some point.”
Anne said progress has been made, but it has been slow. His brain function appears to be normal, but his lungs are damaged and scarred.
“She’s still very seriously ill, but they’re saying they’re going to do everything they can to save her life,” Anne said on Steve Peter’s show on Red Voice Media. “Scott is fighting. He said he’s absolutely fighting.”
Alina Health has declined a request for comment. In an earlier story, the healthcare system with 12 hospitals and 90 clinics in Minnesota and Wisconsin said it had full confidence in its medical professionals, that it could not talk about Scott’s specific case, and that ” continues to wish the patient and family “well.”
As time went on, Scott’s oxygen levels were not improving. He was put on a ventilator and transferred to the intensive care unit at Mercy Hospital on 6 November. He lost 30 pounds during his stay, Anne said, going by 210 lbs. Up to 180 lbs.
According to court documents, Mercy intended to turn off her husband’s ventilator at noon on January 13. Anne, who felt the hospital was not exploring other treatment options beyond protocol, was given a restraining order and transferred to a Houston hospital. He has demanded not to name the hospital.
Mercy’s response at the time, through the Frederickson and Byron law firm, was that Anne’s “position is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law, and as a result, Mercy would ask the court to issue an injunction asking Mercy to close down.” Have the right to Mr. Quinner’s ventilator and go ahead with his medical care plan.”
Anne spoke of her frustrations with the staff at Mercy Hospital, recounting how she and a pastor were removed from the hospital chapel by security as they prayed for Scott. She said she thought the staff had abandoned Scott.
On The Glenn Beck Show she said, “They were telling my family that I was having a hard time, and they were prompting me to either put her in comfy care or sign a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) “
Her experience in Texas has been very different, she told Steve Peters.
“I think he went from the worst doctors in the entire United States to the best doctors,” she said.
