What are the rules of minors in mental hospitals?

If a minor voluntarily checks himself or herself in to an inpatient program at Peachford Hospital.... can their parents check them out whenever? or at least after the required 72 hour observation period? if they checked in tonight could they get out Saturday?

Do not check yourself into any mental health facility without your parents by your side. Please. You will regret your decision.

Check yourself in if you need help. Because it's voluntary you can check yourself out. Make sure to have a staff member call your parents.

With all due respect, he stated he is a minor. And even with a 72-hour observation hold this does not mean they will release him. I do not think he has the mental capacity to understand all the paperwork one must read and sign before admission. I stand by my post. Thank you.
