A few years back in another region, we used to give both IM and IV because
after IV the patient sat up, vomited on the student nurse (everyone else
standing well back) and ran out of the department. The idea was the IM stuff
would cut in when they collapsed on the way home/ to their dealer so at
least they'd keep breathing a bit.
