Hey all, I'm trying to gain some answers or resources I can use to find answers for my girlfriend. She visited a local hospital's pyschiatric office with feelings of a panic attack. She reported to me they admitted her out of her will. This happened last Saturday.
It's now, er was Wednesday and when talking to her social worker about when she can leave they gave her an indefinite answer. My first question, is there a point in which she can voluntarily leave? If anyone has any resources that I can contact regarding to laws within Ohio to help me find an answer I would greatly appreciate it. I'm worried because the hospital she is at has very poor reviews. They have her on antidepressants and anti anxiety meds which I expected but for some reason she's on an antipsychotic. She had no intentions of harming herself or others. What further complicates the matter is they have activities scheduled really early and attendance is factored into being told when she can leave she reported but the meds make her sleep in. She reported that they just medicate the other patients to keep everyone to themselves, sadly this reinforces the reviews I have read.
I'm hoping for any help here to get her out as soon as possible, during my visit today she was back to her normal chipper self and expressed how much she wants out.
