Dr. Foreman needed the shots because he got bit by the patient.
In the old days (don't know how old), rabies shots were horribly painful, so people really wanted to be sure they were needed. That excuse has diminished substantially.

Going by an episode of _House, M.D._, you may have to think about rabies an' stuff like that. (I hope you get to read this reasonably promptly.)
In the United Kingdom, bats are legally protected and generally you can't remove them from property, but they are unlikely to set up home in human living space - and if a building is properly maintained, they usually won't get in.

AFAIK it's the same in the USA.
Or so it would seem by what's said by this aptly named firm:

A friend in Florida hired them to "evict" a mess of bats which took up residence under the tiles on his home's his "Spanish tile" roof. The company used their "one way doors" to let the bats out and then keep them out

I had the same thing happen. First, one bat, then a few days later another one showed up.
I started with this link for some info....,
http://unexco.com/bat.html
.....and then clicked on the other links at the bottom of that page.
