(November 29, 2021 – Chicago) Over the Thanksgiving weekend, a patient who received Ivermectin only as a result of a court order was discharged, fully recovered, after a legal battle to receive the potentially lifesaving medication. Edward Hospital in Naperville, Illinois, had refused to administer the drug, despite the wishes of Dr. Man Kwan Ng, whose father was desperately ill and hospitalized with COVID-19.


On November 5, 2021, Judge Paul Fullerton of the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Court in DuPage County, Illinois, ordered Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare to grant temporary and emergency hospital privileges to Dr. Alan Bain. Over the strenuous objection of Edward Hospital, Bain was allowed to administer Ivermectin to the patient, Sun Ng, who at that point had been on a ventilator for 22 days.


The court ordered Ivermectin treatment was given to the 71-year-old Ng for five days, November 8 through November 12, and on November 27, 2021, Ng was released. Fully recovered, he is now at home with his daughter and family.


“My father’s recovery is amazing,” shared Dr. Man Kwan Ng. “My father is a tough man. He was working so hard to survive, and of course, with God’s holding hands. He weaned off oxygen about three days after moving out of the ICU. He started oral feeding before hospital discharge. He returned home without carrying a bottle of oxygen and a feeding tube installed to his stomach. He can now stand with a walker at the bedside and practice stepping. After being sedated for a month on a ventilator in ICU, his performance is beyond our expectations. Praise the Lord.”


Dr. Ng also stated, “Our family especially thanks Judge Paul Fullerton. Without him, we couldn’t bring my father home and couldn’t see him smile at us again. We also gratefully thank our attorneys, Ralph C. Lorigo and Mauck & Baker, LLC, for the entire legal process and fighting for my father’s rights. We also sincerely thank Dr. Alan Bain for walking along with us and his administration of Ivermectin to my father. We also want to say thank you to the doctors and nurses in the hospital. I saw the caring of the nurses when I stayed at the bedside with my father.”


Kirstin Erickson, attorney at Mauck & Baker, LLC, one of the attorneys representing the interests of Sun Ng, accredits the swift court action of Fullerton, who ordered the Ivermectin treatment, as the reason that Ng is at home - alive, healthy, and lucid.


Despite the hospital’s flouting of Fullerton’s initial order issued of November 5, Edward-Elmhurst Health eventually complied. Erickson thanks Edward Hospital and its staff for their ultimate cooperation in allowing Ng to receive the court-ordered medication.
