    Our full-moon madness has already started where I work. I think the next full moon is on Saturday night. I would like to send the Haldol through the vent system at our school. Sad thing is a bunch of our students are already on Haldol!

    OK, I'll buy the full moon bit, worked to many of them to not notice all the craziness. Had all my own babies on full moons. But, what about all the other days?

    I'd like to see vaporised Haloperidol or similar in ED waiting rooms. Maybe there could be another button beside the duress alarm, and we could spray some form of benzodiazepine from the triage desk which would also placate the relatives.
