MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – An Anoka County judge has ordered Mercy Hospital to keep a patient battling COVID-19 on a ventilator, the latest development in an ongoing legal battle with the man’s family.

Judge Jennifer Stanfield filed the order Thursday. According to the court document, a hearing will take place on February 11 (via Zoom), and if the plaintiff – listed as Anne Quiner – does not issue a temporary injunction, then that temporary injunction would be dissolved.

In a filed affidavit, Quiner said she was trying to find a new facility for her husband but needed more time.

According to a GoFundMe launched to help Quiner’s family pay medical bills, her husband was initially admitted to a hospital in Waconia after testing positive for COVID-19 in October. There he was put on a ventilator and taken to an intensive care unit at Mercy Hospital, according to GoFundMe.
