He ordered the patient be placed on upper respiratory infection protocol. About 35 mins later, the patient complained of feeling like his tongue was swollen. The in-house doctor examined him and noted he did not have a swollen tongue, however, he did note it was asymmetrical. He ordered a shot of Benadryl IM and his oxygen sturation rate was monitored at 99%.The doctor ordered the patient be sent to the ER due to complaints by the patient that he was having diffculty breathing and the patinet finally consented to go to the ER.
