Too much of a good thing?

A hospital in the UK is removing alcohol gel dispensers at entrances to the building because of instances of homeless persons drinking the gel. The article reports that two deaths in London have been attributed to this. Gel dispensers will remain in other parts of the hospital.


  1. That's a saddening turn of circumstance. Would an alternative route be to direct alcohol intervention services towards those locations instead? Save the gel, save the people?
