Only after he left did I realize that our security detail had REAL problems with the gentlemen that were there to pick up the patient. I won't go into much detail here other than to say I still have no idea who they were, but they were dressed in nice suits and seemed to have an official sense. The patient exited with them under no duress and apparently entered a car with them.

I can promise you this - I'm not here to be sensationalistic or to cause a scene. I sincerely want to hear from others that may have had this experience. He alluded that others have, in fact, experienced this (perhaps I'm giving away my "means to an end" for posting here).
I guess more than anything I'm just very bothered and haven't talked with anyone about this so far.
I was trying very hard to put the things he'd stated last out of my mind. He then appeared at the doorway of the exam room and stated that he "had to go." I asked him to please return to the bed and we all began to approach him. He walked toward us and simply said, "Against medical advice."
I grab the hem of one of the towels and start untwizzling the fabric from his head, the towel’s wet with blood and as I ease it away I immediately realise why his face is drooping.
A chasm of skull grins up at me.The laceration starts at his left eyebrow, travels straight back across his crown and finishes two inches away from the top of his left ear. At its widest point the gap in his scalp is four inches across, a pink creamy expanse of bone hits Norrie and I at some primal point, you don’t need medical training to know that you’re not supposed to see that much of anyone’s skull.
