When i was delivering my baby someone tried to escape downstairs and climb out the air ducts from the bathroom! The next night someone tried to light a fire in the bathroom and i was giving birth and all the fire alarms were going off! Lol

As Roger says, it's a hospital, not a prison. Unless someone is handcuffed they CAN leave. Some people are better escape artists than others and the ER has several exits. Hard to get in there but not hard to leave.

What if (as in this case) the subject is a juvenile and (as in this case) they still haven’t found him

Juvenile is back on hold at Cottage as of midnight last night. Worth noting, the hospital never called his family once to let them know he escaped .

Unless they are in the ER before being brought up to the psych floor. I have heard of 5150's escaping the ER before.

Most psychiatric units in hospitals are locked to prevent psych patients from unaccompanied access to the rest of the facility. They're locked, in part, to keep all patients in the hospital safe.
