ER attitudes towards drunks

J Emerg Med. 2012 Apr 21. [Epub ahead of print]
Emergency Physicians’ and Nurses’ Attitudes towards Alcohol-Intoxicated Patients.
Warren OU, Sena V, Choo E, Machan J.
Physicians were less satisfied and more dissatisfied than nurses when caring for alcohol-intoxicated patients. Physicians found treating alcohol-intoxicated patients more difficult than nurses did. Physicians were more likely to agree that alcohol-intoxicated patients should be treated with respect. Physicians felt more adequately trained than nurses in caring for alcohol-intoxicated patients. Nurses were more likely to believe that alcohol-related rehabilitation is ineffective compared with physicians. Both nurses and physicians refer alcohol-intoxicated patients to rehabilitation to a similar extent.
