Had an ambulance cal

Had an ambulance call at 0330 for a PT complaining of “swollen tongue.” This PT lives across town from the squad, roughly 3 minutes from the hospital. After waking up, getting dressed, and getting halfway there, we get called by dispatch saying, “patrol is advising that pt is tired of waiting and will drive himself to the ED.” I talked to the officer later and apparently our hero stormed into triage and demanded to be given a “Benedryl IV.”
