Dr. Jason Tracy, chief of emergency medicine at South Shore Hospital, says that his hospital has not seen any recent case involving the use of bath salts, but points out that it’s not always possible to determine what a person might have ingested when they are in a highly agitated state like someone on bath salts. They might have taken something similar or even a combination of drugs.
“We see plenty of highly agitated patients, though. It can be challenging to tease out just what the agents are,” he said.
