Dear colleagues,

We are looking into establishing a policy for ETOH intoxication in our pediatric ED. We frequently have multiple college students presenting with varying degrees of intoxication, and we have thought that it may be helpful to have guidelines that could assist in their management. Does anyone have any policies regarding intoxicated patients, specifically regarding testing, monitoring, treatment, and discharge criteria?

Thank you for your thoughts, Daniela
