  1. Discharges against medical advice : Provider accountability and psychiatric patients'rights.

    Article - En anglais

    1 If clinicians decide to prevent a voluntary patient from leaving a facility, proper protocols must be followed within the time limits defined in that state's laws on detentions. 2 AMA discharges can sometimes be prevented by expedient treatment that includes involving the patient in goal-setting, adequate patient teaching, and appropriate discharge planning.

    Hospital management personnel should be familiar with individual state 3 laws on detention protocols and should assist staff in resolving irregular discharge questions.
