Morgue details

Not really sure how to research this one.
I need a few details on How Things Are Generally Run in morgues. US, mostly modern day (though anything going back as far as 50 years or so Might Come Up.)
Primary questions are: 1. Could someone (of normal human strength) in one of those body drawers like you see on TV (do real morgues have those?) get herself out of one of those if she got shut into one while alive? (well, technically, if it matters, while dead, but coming to life after, so no getting out via funny business when she's put in) and 2. are hospital morgues generally staffed 24 hours, or not, or does it vary?
But any details or sources anyone wants to throw in would be appreciated.
