I am sure they would what do you plan on carrying the baby around in and how do you plan on getting home?

At the hospital I delivered at they checked your car seat to make sure it was in properly before you could take the baby home so around her I would assume no.

REQUIRED by law, but the hospital should have some in stock to gift to you in case.

Here you must have a car seat. Doesn't matter if you are getting on a bus or walking home, baby must be in a car seat.

They won't let you take the baby out of the Hospital without one.

Most all hospitals have programs where you can apply for a free infant carrier. You need to contact your hospital ahead of time though. 

And, no - hopefully they will not allow you to leave without one! I know when I had my son (9 years ago) a nurse walked us out to insure the car seat was properly installed. My cousin had a baby last week at the same hospital and she said no one walked her out but they did have her bring the car carrier inside to carry the baby out in.
