Research carried out by a master's student from the School of Nursing & Midwifery at NUI Galway and supervised by Yvonne Conway examined the perceptions of doctors and nurses towards intoxicated patients who present at Irish Emergency Departments.. The main concerns were that these patients were not receiving the attention they required, and a lack of vital follow-up care. Findings showed ED staff were left feeling "ill-equipped" and "frustrated" at the difficulties in meeting the needs or fully assessing the injury risks of intoxicated patients. The study findings suggest staff feel they don't have the resources, time or education to address the specific issues these patients have, beyond caring for their immediate medical needs.
