Correct

- 97 year old with left sided weakness

- 27 year old female with a water snake bite on her hand

- 12 year old male with hand pain after getting his hand shut in the car door

- 20 year old male in a car accident with back and neck pain

Rationale

Any sided weakness is concerning for a stroke and needs to be seen immediately. The snake bite was not a poisonous snake, the other patients are stable.
