St. Elizabeths Hospital is revising some of its visitor and patient protocols after a 56-year-old man committed to the psychiatric facility walked away unnoticed and was found dead days later during last week's snowstorm.
A 56-year-old man found dead on a snow-covered sidewalk in Southeast D.C. Thursday had been reported missing four days earlier from the District's psychiatric hospital — where he had received on and off treatment for nearly three decades.
Jones says the security officers who failed to check Barber's identification was fired.
"He was with staff and started to walk away, was followed by staff and ran and was able to elude staff and security," Ms. Jones said.
