One person knocked unconscious every 30 mins on New Year's

Emergency staff at St Vincent's Hospital treated at least one patient every 30 minutes on New Year's Eve who had been knocked unconscious, the Sydney Morning Herald has reported.

 

Director of emergency Professor Gordian Fulde said the message about alcohol-related violence was still not getting through. 

 

Staff also treated a higher than average number of victims of domestic violence.

 

There were also three heart attack patients and, at 5am, someone who had accidentally walked into the path of a bus.

 

The hospital said it was the busiest New Year's Eve it had experienced.

 

 "It was extra busy in terms of the number of patients with head injuries and the number of people suffering alcohol-related injuries," Dr Fulde said.
