The debate on hospitals ended up with a bit of grey-area/confusion.

County Hospitals are typically publicly owned and therefore under 127.

Private Hospitals are usually fully privately owned and do not fall under 127. However, some privately owned hospitals contract with local cities/counties to provide 911 ambulance and ER service. If public funds are providing the service then you could say the ER was publicly operated.


So basically what it boils down to is that you have to know (before you go) how the hospital's accounting/finances are set up and funded before you know if it is off-limits or not.

GS1, Following your logic about the ER as potentially being a public place in a private institution, then I guess the same might hold true for those stores, like Wal-Mart, that allow the local Sheriff to setup a remote office?
Only in the area that they lease/rent, yes that is the way I read it (not all of Walmart, just the Office itself). Just like a mall itself is not off-limits but a restaurant inside that sells alcohol makes the area they lease/rent off-limits. In the hospital's case (if it was a private hospital with publicly funded ER) then the ER would be off-limits but other parts of the hospital would not be (most hospitals have a seperate emergency entrance away from the one for scheduled services).
