Did you call or have someone else call to let them know?

Agreed. Anaphylactic shock is treatable fairly quickly, and a courtesy call goes a long way. Even if it's shorter than an eight hour shift, a day is plenty of time to call.

Not necessarily treated quickly. The initial danger may be over soon after treatment but it may take hours for the symptoms to subside, and if Benadryl is given the patient may fall asleep for several hours. That coupled with the fact the OP may have been separated from his cell phone/didn't have access to one would interfere with his ability to notify the boss.

Sincerely, a paramedic.

By the way OP worded this they, or someone else, didn't call in the same day to tell them what happened. Since the company didn't know the same day it happened it was treated as if OP skipped work. OP can't file a complaint because of this

To me it sounded more like OP did inform them and just has a real asshole for a boss. In that case #7 yes, OP can report him to the higher ups and/or human resources if their boss tries to penalize them.
