Adams tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he was "glad to be able to assist," and said the unidentified patient was doing well.

President Trump nominated Adams to be surgeon general last year, after Adams previously served as Indiana's state health commissioner. Adams was appointed to that position by Vice President Pence, who was then Indiana's governor.

According to local news affiliate WAPT, Adams is heading to Mississippi to speak at the University of Mississippi Medical Center on Thursday, where he will address the Trump administration's policies dedicated to fighting the opioid crisis.

The Department of Health and Human Services did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday's incident.
