The transport of intoxicated patients is a common duty that CDS does to offer support to patients and families. Family members and friends of these types of patients should accompany their loved ones to the psychiatric hospital with CDS. On many occasions, patients can turn violent due to drugs and alcohol consumed and it helps to have family members and friends there to assist EMS staff.
