A small study shows that business managers and staff — such as those running coffee shops and fast-food restaurants — can be trained to reverse opioid overdoses, which are known to occur in public bathrooms. "Because opioid overdoses may occur in public bathrooms, business managers and staff unwittingly become first responders. Providing training to service industry employees on how to respond to an overdose and administer naloxone will help us save lives," said lead author Brett Wolfson-Stofko, a research scientist at National Development & Research Institutes and affiliated investigator with CDUHR.
