I need hospital policies on releasing patients/run-away patients, specifically teenagers. The character in question is 16 years and being abused by her father. She was taken to the hospital by a farmhand and isn't there willing. She only got taken in because she was unconscious. Would she be able to check herself out of the hospital, would her father be able to, what would the procedures be?
Edit: And the farmhand said she was being abused, but she denies the abuse.
