I read the thread title and thought, what hospital serves beer in the ER ?

I think I like the idea of a cash bar, serving craft beer, at places where a long wait is expected.  The DMV, Target and the grocery store checkout on a Saturday morning would be good choices
Lots of grocery stores in France have full service bars, it seems to make the wife shop faster.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

The sample size is way too small to draw any conclusions. Did a high school student do the study?

The two key elements of the report hinge on Authority.
The Federal Trade Commission and the National Institute on Drug Abuse did not believe this was a testable experiment. As it turns out, it wasn't until the researchers put on lab coats that gave them implied authority over the patients. The rest of the report and "conclusions" about Bud are just journalistic filler and source material for comedians.

It Couldn’t Be Done by Edgar Albert Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
    But, he with a chuckle replied
 That "maybe it couldn’t," but he would be one
     Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
 So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
     On his face. If he worried he hid it.
 He started to sing as he tackled the thing
     That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

 Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you’ll never do that;
     At least no one has done it";
 But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
     And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
 With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
     Without any doubting or quiddit,
 He started to sing as he tackled the thing
     That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

 There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
     There are thousands to prophesy failure;
 There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
     The dangers that wait to assail you.
 But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin,
     Just take off your coat and go to it;
 Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
     That "couldn’t be done," and you’ll do it.
