The Sparks Family Hospital, Northern Nevada Medical center, doctors and individuals are named in the complaint
Reno Attorney Joey Gilbert and Las Vegas Attorney Sigal Chattah have filed the first Remdesivir wrongful death lawsuit (see below) in Nevada on behalf of the heir of a man who allegedly died from Remdesivir treatment for his COVID-19 diagnosis. The Sparks Family Hospital, Northern Nevada Medical center, doctors and individuals are named in the complaint. The plaintiff, in part, alleges the following:
- Patient (now deceased) was prescribed Ivermectin and HCQ. Hospital staff were instructed that under no circumstances was patient to be administered Remdesivir (Veklury) for treatment of his symptoms.
- Staff said that they would comply with patient’s requests but that he could not be given the HCQ or Ivermectin because it was against hospital protocols.
- Doctor ordered Remdesivir despite objections.
- Patient was given Remdesivir and died of renal and respiratory failure a week later.
- Remdesivir is a dangerous, experimental drug
- It is medically unethical, and a violation of Nevada laws, to administer an unnecessary medical treatment.
- It is medically unethical, and a violation of Nevada laws, to administer a medical treatment without informed consent.
In October, attorneys representing 14 families have sued three California hospitals alleging wrongful death in the use of Remdesivir.link
