Scott Quiner, 55, a father-of-three, contracted COVID-19 in October and was put on a ventilator at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, in November. His wife, Anne Quiner, was reportedly told by doctors that his ventilator would be switched off on Jan. 13 after he suffered lung failure.
According to Fox 9, Quiner, who is unvaccinated, was put on a ventilator after his oxygen levels dropped drastically.
Anne Quiner sought a restraining order from Anoka County court, claiming that Allina Health, which operates Mercy Hospital, told her that her husband’s life support would be turned off.
She wrote in a petition that “my husband will die,” without a judge’s decision.
“I have advised the doctors that I vehemently disagree with this action and do not want my husband’s ventilator turned off,” she said, the Star Tribune reported citing court papers.
She was granted a temporary restraining order against the hospital on Jan. 13. The order blocked the hospital from switching off Quiner’s ventilator while his wife found a new hospital to treat him.
Quiner’s family lawyer, Marjorie J. Holsten, told ABC News in a statement on Monday that Quiner was relocated to a Texas hospital, where he remains on a ventilator.
“A doctor evaluated him and determined that he was severely undernourished. Scott has been receiving much-needed nourishment and hydration and medications that were not given by Mercy,” Holsten said.
“He is being weaned off of the sedating drugs and has already been able to follow with his eyes movements the doctor made with his hands. He is making progress in the right direction, though he has a long road ahead of him and continued prayers are appreciated.”
Holsten separately told the Star Tribune that Quiner’s doctor said that he was “the most undernourished patient he has ever seen.”
“The last update I got was yesterday afternoon after some tests had been run. All organs are working except his lungs,” she added.
The Epoch Times has contacted Allina Health for comment.
The group told several news outlets in a statement that it “has great confidence in the exceptional care provided to our patients, which is administered according to evidence-based practices by our talented and compassionate medical teams.”
“Due to patient privacy, we cannot comment on care provided to specific patients,” the health system wrote. “Allina Health continues to wish the patient and family well. Any information regarding the patient’s on-going care should be directed to his current medical provider.”

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
