A 45-year-old man has a history of smoking 1 pack per day and drinking a six-pack of beer daily over the last ten years. He is admitted to the medical floor after undergoing a cholecystectomy. One day after the surgery, the patient states that he feels anxious and that his hands are shaking. While being checked for a clean surgical site, the patient starts shaking vigorously and loses consciousness. The patient groans and falls to the floor. His arms and legs begin to jerk rapidly and rhythmically. This episode lasts for almost five minutes, and the patient's airway, breathing, and circulation are stabilized per seizure protocol. What is the best next step for this patient?
