The Immediate Care Center should have done something other than send Cody away. It would seem their calling to the medical field would have warranted their doing something to help him before EMS arrived.
A number of years ago, the doctor on call at that same immediate care center sent my young daughter, who was having abdominal pain, and me to Baptist East because it was ten or fifteen minutes before closing time. It was clear to me that rather than see my daughter (for what turned out to be a very treatable urinary tract infection), the physician preferred to make sure she left on time (or a little early). The end result was that my daughter and I got to hang out at the ER for hours, ultimately to get a prescription or two. As a result of this experience, I found this immediate care center to be neither.
