Guidelines for action in case a patient is found missing from the hospital

1. Where a patient is reported missing from the Hospital, all efforts will first be made by the hospital to locate him/her. Information will be sent to the unit, Station HQ, CMP, Civil Police and NOK regarding his / her absence from the hospital. When all efforts to locate the patient do not succeed, he/she will
be discharged in absentia.

2. After being discharged in absentia, should the patient report again to
the hospital, he/ she will be re-admitted for further treatment, if required. The
period of absence from the hospital will be reported to the unit of the individual
in case of serving soldiers, for necessary investigation and action.
