We couldn’t require a doctors note.  If they felt well enough to return the next day, that would be fine.  I would probably also talk to them privately to make sure they felt okay to work.

I would definitely request a doctor’s release if an employee was rushed to the hospital. The employee may want to return to work (for financial reasons) but physically be unable to preform the tasks required; this opens the door for work-related injury and a huge Worker’s Comp claim. As an employer, I would require a doctor’s note clearing that employee for full duties before allowing the employee to return to work in any capacity. Especially given the nature of the pain (sudden onset, significant enough to require immediate medical attention).
