Alcohol Sales may predict ER Patient Volume

Posted Oct 03 2008 12:45pm
The chance of being the victim of a violent assault increases 13% for every 1,000 litres of alcholol sold in your community. Right now ER workers around the world are saying "no s***". The implications are big however because restricting alcholol sales during peak demand could lower assault rates. A critical review of the article can be found in the same issue of PLoS Medicine.
