ED patients who are able to drink juice will be approached and asked their beverage preference.

Study summary:

Once per week for 26 weeks, patients will be enrolled during a randomly selected 1-hour block. The random blocks will be assigned using STATA. During these enrollment periods, all current ED patients will be screened by the treating physicians and research associates, excluding patients in the "Special Care" unit, where most patients are intoxicated with alcohol. Eligibility for oral consumption of water and juice will be determined by treating physicians. Patients who are deemed eligible to drink water or juice will be approached and asked their beverage preferences. Their response will be recorded, and the beverage will be procured for them.

Patients are only enrolled during randomly selected 1-hour blocks once per week for 26 weeks. Exclusion Criteria: - Previously enrolled in the study - Patients who are placed in the "special care" unit of the Emergency Department, which generally cares for intoxicated patients.
