Once things get to that point it is obvious that the patient cannot be cared for in the current setting and needs to go to an ER with a 72 hour hold for evaluation. After that I would hope that the unit would not re-admit someone like that. My guess is that law enforcement would decide if the person committed a crime and needed to be arrested. Jails have psych wards for these types of people.Jails around here certainly don't have psych ward.
