"We have had several autistic patients without mental illness live in our ED for months at a time. The most recent was this summer, when a 22 yr-old young person with autism lived in our ED for 67 straight days. Every day she begged to go home. Our staff had no control over getting her there - we were waiting and waiting for the state to come up with a solution for them.
This is only one story among so many."
