My mom's a nurse... she said some guy actually did attempt to walk out of the hospital one time.
Most of the time...no. But recently my grandma woke up at night, dressed and just walked out. It can happen, a lot more then ud expect
my friends dad escaped the hospital with two broken legs in a wheelchar two days before he was released.
Haha my nan has been trying to escape for the past week, all the nurses and everyone has to keep an eye on her because they know what she will do. She also went a lil physco while she was in there and threw pillows and her medication at people :S awkward!
Actually yes, they do.
My granddad walked out of hospital, and was found walking up a street a mile away .__.
