I was recently hospitalized for major depression. I learned that if your are assessed as being suicidal or homicidal, you will be held for observation for three days. You could not leave. Maybe they will evaluate your sister this way and keep her. It sounds as if they need to get her stabilized with meds that will help her.
Is there any way your nephew can see a therapist? Maybe therapy could help him avoid being permanently scarred by the situation.
My thoughts and prayers are wilth you. I hope this helps a little.
