Dying COVID-19 Patient Recovers After Court Orders Hospital to Administer Ivermectin | 1 Dec 2021 | An elderly COVID-19 patient [Sun Ng, 71] has recovered after a court order allowed him to be treated with ivermectin, despite objections from the hospital in which he was staying, according to the family's attorney. After an Illinois hospital insisted on administering expensive remdesivir to the patient and the treatment failed, his life was saved after a court ordered that an outside medical doctor be allowed to use the inexpensive ivermectin to treat him, over the hospital's strenuous objections...

After an Illinois hospital insisted on administering expensive remdesivir to the patient and the treatment failed
COVID-19 patients on ventilators in ICU are cared for in a prone position to improve delivery of oxygen to vital organs, however they are highly susceptible to pressure injuries, QUT Professor of Nursing Fiona Coyer says.
Patients on ventilators lie face-down for up to 16 hours a day
Pressure on skin from being face-down can cause skin injury
Highly skilled, labour intensive task to reposition these patients
Healthcare workers must use a combination of measures to prevent
Professor Coyer, from QUT Faculty of Health, is an expert in pressure injury (‘bed sores’) prevention whose work has brought to light a serious problem in nursing COVID-19 patients who need mechanical ventilation.
“These critically ill patients on ventilators are in an induced coma and typically lie face-down for up to 16 hours a day,” Professor Coyer said.

According to the hospital he was marked for death, returning to Hong Kong would seal the deal if given the opportunity to speak on his experience with ivermectin there?
Healthcare workers have to treat bed sores/ulcers for patients that are in bed for long periods of time. They also have to reposition patients to avoid these injuries as much as possible.
Prone positioning is an adjuvant therapy used to treat COVID-19 pneumonia complicated by acute respiratory distress syndrome. However, prolonged pressure on facial skin at the level of the bony structures may be responsible for facial pressure ulcers. In the context of severe COVID-19 pneumonia, we hypothesized that hypoxemia, microvascular injury and thrombosis can increase the risk of pressure ulcers. We described two cases in order to emphasize the risk of facial pressure ulcers as a result of prone positioning, so as to discuss their physiopathology and highlight the importance of appropriate preventive measures.

so he took it after he was already given remdisvr, that's not proof that ivermectin did anything, that's only proof that something worked but no telling of what exactly.
that's like saying sprite helps joint pain just because they used it to swallow an advil, as if there was no advil.
