Rolling Stone recently ran a story about an Oklahoma hospital that was supposedly overwhelmed with ivermectin overdoses. Shortly thereafter, the hospital issued a statement completely rebuking the claims made in the Rolling Stone story.
Rolling Stone ran a story in which they claimed that a hospital in Oklahoma was so overwhelmed with ivermectin overdoses that they were unable to treat patients for gunshot wounds. “The rise in people using ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug usually reserved for deworming horses or livestock, as a treatment or preventative for Covid-19 has emergency rooms “so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting” access to health facilities, an emergency room doctor in Oklahoma said.
Shortly afterwards, the Northeastern Health System – Sequoyah issued a statement completely rebuking the Rolling Stone article. In the statement, it was revealed that the doctor quoted in the Rolling Stone story was not even employed with NHS Sequoyah, had not worked at the location in months, and had not treated any patients related to ivermectin. The statement further debunks the Rolling Stone piece by stating that no patients have been turned away and that no ivermectin overdoses had occurred.
