Minnesota man battling COVID-19 moved to Texas hospital after lawsuit over ventilator

BUFFALO, MN — A Buffalo, Minnesota man suffering from COVID-19 is in Texas where his family is hoping and praying doctors there can save his life, according to FOX 9.

Scott Quiner’s family went to court last week to get a restraining order to keep Allina Health from pulling the plug on the ventilator that was keeping him alive in Minnesota.

Quiner’s loved ones and their attorney report the 55-year old father of three was unvaccinated when he was first diagnosed with COVID-19 in late October, around Halloween.

He required deep sedation, a breathing tube, and a ventilator when his oxygen levels got dangerously low and did not improve.

Scott’s wife, Anne Quiner claims Allina threatened to pull the plug on that ventilator last week and that is when she went to court to fight.

Anne has power of attorney over Scott’s healthcare decisions. She hired lawyer Marjorie Holsten to stop Allina from pulling the plug on the ventilator, a move she believes would have killed him.

“This is a life-saving thing. It is going to be critical,” explained Holsten, who admits she has never handled a case like this one.

The Quiners have stated in public comments and social media that Allina would not treat Scott with certain drugs, nor would they attempt other extraordinary measures that might save his life. When the medical team allegedly told the family that Scott had just a couple more days on the ventilator, Holsten rushed to court to obtain the restraining order. The judge signed it Jan. 13.

“It was mentioned Monday, confirmed on Tuesday,” said Holsten. “By Tuesday, they said, ok, Thursday at noon, we pull the plug. I don’t think the judge wanted to be on the wrong side of saying, ‘Of course, you should be able to pull the plug’ so the judge was correct doing that.”

Over the weekend, Scott was transferred on a med flight to an unidentified hospital in Texas, apparently willing to meet the family’s medical wishes for life-saving treatments. By Sunday, Jan. 16 in the evening, he was already said to be improving on the ventilator while being weaned from the heavy sedatives, and provided extra nutrients.

His family claims that it appears most of his major organs are functioning well, except his lungs.

Allina provided a brief written statement that read in part: “Allina Health is grateful the family was able to find a health care facility that meets their needs and we continue to wish them all the best,” according to FOX 9

Meantime, the Quiners have raised tens of thousands of dollars for Scott’s emergency, life-saving care through a pair of online fundraisers in recent days, boosted by significant online coverage of his case.

Tickets are now on sale for the 28th Winstock Country Music Festival, which will take place Friday-Saturday, June 17-18, 2022, in Winsted, and the artist lineup was announced this morning.

“We are stoked to have the caliber of artists that are signed to join us in 2022,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Chairman Dave Danielson. “If you add up all the number one hits these artists have had over the years, it might be the most ever heard from the Winstock stage in one weekend.”

Forty four of those number-one hits alone belong to McGraw, who is arguably one of the most recognizable and popular names in country music. In addition to being country music’s most played artist since his debut in 1992, McGraw is also a best-selling author and actor.

“We’ve been working for years to have Tim McGraw at our event, and we are very excited for him to make his debut on the Winstock stage for what is sure to be a special night,” Danielson said.

The rest of the lineup blends old favorites with some of the hottest artists in country music today. Brothers Osborne reclaimed their title of Vocal Duo of the Year at the recent Country Music Awards, and Jimmie Allen was named New Artist of the Year.

“We were all watching the awards and crossing our fingers for those guys,” Danielson said. “Plus when you have Jake Owen, Neal McCoy, Gary Allan, and Little Texas all on the same lineup, it’s sure to be a weekend not to miss.”

Complete artist bios, official links, and schedule can be found at www.winstockfestival.com. More artists will be announced in the months to come.
