I'm not sure whether this is the right place to ask, but I hope so.

In my story, there is a guy in a hospital who is getting aggressive to the hospital's nurses. The only way to do something about is, is sedate him. What kind of sedatives would they use to do so?

(PS the patient was brough into the hospital, missing half his liver, a big loss of blood and doped up. Cheery, I know, don't ask...)

ED's tend to like haldol for sedating combative patients. The next most popular choice would be some sort of benzo - valium, ativan, versed.
