Even then, I will probably fight against it, but I won't fight as hard.
I have never gone in with the 5150. But I know in the US, they can't legally hold you for more than 72 hours. At most hospitals checking in and out is voluntary. I voluntarily checked myself at a hospital and the next day voluntarily checked myself out.
