He asked the others in his group to find out where the nearest hospital was while he went to his hotel room to get his EpiPen

Quote:
Hearing that the hospital was so close, Mr. Martin did not use his EpiPen.

!. Carry your Epipen.
2. Keep the patient still. Bring medication to patient NOT the patient to the medication.
3. Judge the rsponse from the staff-insist they chack with the kitchen ingredients can change.
4. Do not drive yourself, call 911 (although for a 2 minute drive, I would be tempted to go by car, too).

This isn't good at all. Now that there is an official legal precedent, this is going to open up restaurants refusing to serve you if you have an allergy. Which really, I don't blame them.
