!! Arkansas Jail Doctor Reportedly Prescribing Inmates Ivermectin (The Deworming Drug) For COVID

Arkansas Jail Doctor Reportedly Prescribing Inmates Ivermectin (The Deworming Drug) For COVID

“I was really mortified by it, but also just embarrassed. I mean, the whole world’s talking about ‘don’t do this,’ but yet we’re doing it to our detainees,” Eva Madison, a justice of the peace in Washington County, told TPM Wednesday. Justices of the peace are equivalent to county commissioners in Arkansas.

Madison claimed in a county meeting Tuesday night that the doctor contracted to work in the county jail, Rob Karas, was prescribing Ivermectin for inmates. She said she’d also heard from a county employee who’d received a negative COVID-19 test at the jail that the employee had been prescribed Ivermectin. Madison shared with TPM a photograph of the prescription she said the employee received for Ivermectin.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported that Sheriff Tim Helder separately confirmed that Karas Correctional Health had informed him last month that they were using the medication. Helder praised Karas at the county meeting Tuesday night.

“This is appalling,” State Rep. Nicole Clowney (D) wrote in response to the Democrat Gazette report.

2. I posted from twitter last night . Washington county appears to be a very backward area The dr. is

being supported by more than the local sheriff . His clinic is also using it for private patients but at least they have a choice on who treats them

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported that Sheriff Tim Helder separately confirmed that Karas Correctional Health had informed him last month that they were using the medication.

Helder praised Karas at the county meeting Tuesday night 😣

The twitter post has screen shots of his FB he isn’t going to change and probably will be doing it next week, next month ..

6. So you are saying it is not a backward area ? What's going on in the "official pro life county"?

Is it a big city ? I don’t know anything about the county except what people on twitter were saying about the county being very conservative . It appeared their actions back up at least some of their tweets.
Sorry if I offended anyone here by calling them backward

4. Swell

After all, the vaccine is just soooo expensive and scarce!

Inmates don't have a lot of rights, but they are 100% entitled to competent medical care. A fact that will soon cost Washington County a lot of money.

7. Imagine the line at the restrooms.

and the smell.
This has, as they politely say, a "laxative effect".

8. I can't imagine a Pharmacist filling the medication orders

There is a checking system...well you think.. Regardless...The Board of Pharmacy in Arkansas needs a report filed for investigation...The State Rep...the listed Democrat can report to the Board of Pharmacy...Could go as so far to also report to the State Board of Nursing as you can't give an off the wall drug like this...their license is at risk...Pluss is not a medication in the Formulary for covid-19...

10. this is literally medical experimentation of the worst sort, like Doctor Mengele

This Rob Karas has no authority to use veterinary medications on healthy prisoners. He is literally treating them like horses!

12. The employee that received the prescription was thankfully told by their primary

care physician to throw it in the trash.
