He could have just called the police the moment they refused to discharge her. Its a great marketing ploy for the hospital though, she tried to commit suicide so were going to keep her here. Sure the bills are going to pile up and we'll charge for everything she uses, does or is told that way when she does go home (suicide attempt or not) she will most likely really attempt suicide because of the mounting medical bills. Its a win win on the hospitals side.

Physically and aggressively attacking the family (mostly just the security officer) was NOT appropriate, either way.
@buttsdowhat: I agree with you, completely. The family WAS very wrong for what they did, they were NOT acting rationally and they were extremely misinformed. :) I'm not completely sure if people understand that I feel that way... based on the fact I`ve chosen mostly to point out the faults of the hospital in this situation. Once family is involved a good portion of humans become irrational...
My entire stance is that the family being wrong does not absolve the hospital of guilt for their misconduct... especially when it could have ALL been avoided if not for the actions of ONE person (the nurse in the begining) had not been rude and evasive in answering the families questions.......... Instead she tried to talk to the FAMILY like they were one of her Psych Ward patients, instead of the family of one.

yanking them, grabbing them. I still think this woulve have gone better if they had just kept them from leaving until a police officer could arrive to talk them down.
@doode999: I saw at least one other elevator next to the one they were in. Elevators break down and I'm betting they have procedures in place in the event that an elevator become unusable. The best I can tell they are NOT in the ER anymore, they are upstairs in the psych ward. I`m not saying that an elevator in a hospital is not important, just that it isn`t because it`s in the ER, we do not know what other sections of the hospital are connected via those elevators.
Whether they needed it or not, it was still the only place they were going to have this family cornered and unable to advance their attempted escape while still feeling like they were trying enough to not become physical... for long enough for a police officer to arrive, instead of trying to take it into their own hands. Physically and aggres
