"Dr. [Jason] McElyea said patients are packing his eastern and southeastern Oklahoma hospitals after taking ivermectin doses meant for a full-sized horse, because they believed false claims the horse de-wormer could fight COVID-19.
"'The ERs are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated. [...] All of their ambulances are stuck at the hospital waiting for a bed to open so they can take the patient in and they don’t have any.'"
"Although Dr. Jason McElyea is not an employee of NHS Sequoyah, he is affiliated with a medical staffing group that provides coverage for our emergency room. With that said, Dr. McElyea has not worked at our Sallisaw location in over 2 months. NHS Sequoyah has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking ivermectin."
