ONE IN 20 cases brought to emergency departments in Ireland are related to alcohol, says a study published in BMJ Open today.
It shows 5.9% of people attending emergency departments in the study had alcohol recorded in their notes. During Saturday night and Sunday morning that number would vary to 29%.
Monday morning saw the lowest percentage, with only 1.2% of patients at emergency departments being alcohol related.
