Upon arrival to the ED, she was evaluated by the triage nurse and determined to be awake, alert, calm, and cooperative and she denied current suicidal thoughts. The ED was extremely busy, and the patient was placed on a gurney with a Posey restraint in the hallway next to the triage station awaiting psychiatric social work assessment. Approximately 40 minutes later, the triage nurse noticed that the patient was missing from the gurney.
