Absorption Rate – The rate at which alcohol penetrates the membranes of the mouth, stomach, and intestines, and is processed by the body. Alcohol Poisoning – The state at which the intake of alcohol has surpassed the body’s processing time and the body is saturated with alcohol. Depending on the degree of intoxication, most of the time if treated, a person can live through alcohol poisoning. However, if the person is left unattended, they can die. Behavioral Clues – Signs that a person displays that are clues to their level of intoxication. Examples include: speaking loudly, slurring words, stumbling, and aggression. Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) – The amount of alcohol in the bloodstream. It is measured in percentages. For instance, having a BAC of 0.10 percent means that a person has 1 part alcohol per 1000 parts blood in the body. BAC is affected by weight, gender, and rate of consumption. Breathalyzer – A device that is used to determine the alcohol content of a breath sample. Refuse Service to Someone – When you determine someone has had enough to drink and you refuse to serve them anymore alcohol. One Drink – When calculating the number of drinks a person has had, they should be measured as “one drink” – one 12-oz beer; one 5 oz glass of wine; one 1 ½ oz serving of liquor. So, a drink with 3 oz of rum would count as TWO drinks, not one. Documentation Log – A log where all incidents that occur are recorded including: time, date, description of event, witnesses, steps taken. Dram Shop Laws – Liability laws specific to alcohol servers which hold servers responsible for harm that intoxicated or underage patrons cause to other people. Mocktails – Non-alcoholic beverages that are meant to taste like alcoholic beverages.
