That is what I am trying to change.
Considered and dismissed it? Okay, at least you considered it.
There is a big difference between taking a few minutes out within walking distance, and driving to the shops.
And, yes, actually I would consider reporting that, as she locked the door and left the property. I may not actually report it, but I would consider it.
The mum may genuinely believe she did nothing wrong. Or may have issues. Or may not have family support. Any of these are reason enough to consider intervention, as it will help.

Having babies is so hard and sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do to stay sane.

There's taking 10 minutes, and there's taking a huge risk- the locked door was the huge risk.
Intervention may be needed if she genuinely didn't consider the risks...which you cannot know without intervention. Whether that is you, personally, talking to her. You saying to her partner that X happened, or her family, etc.

There was a facebook group I was in once, and one day there was a post on there from a woman who's nephew had just died in a housefire. Her sister had left him asleep at home to go to the gym.
This poor woman needed to be there to comfort her sister who had just lost her son, whilst feeling this gut wrenching blame towards her for what she had done and she had lost her nephew because of it.
Not. Worth. It.

Does anyone remember the three year old who was left home alone sleeping (I think the parent was walking their older child to school or along similar lines, the child wasn't left at home for long) and woke up and fell 7m off the balcony?
I remember it...it was all over the news and docs got involved due to the toddler being left home alone. That is all I can think of when I read this thread.
It's so never okay, no matter what the circumstances.

Leaving sleeping baby at home..alone?!
My SIL's nanny left the youngest alone at home while she went and pick up the other kid from school.
The toddler was probably 3yo, awake and left alone for 20-25min.
They live on the 15th floor.
Your post gave me shivers @Party of Three.
No need to say that the nanny got the boot. 😳

A neighbour of my parents left her 1.5 year old sleeping in the house while she went next door to ask another neighbour about gardening tips. The child woke and went looking for her... she was found, by the mother, in the kitchen. She had tried to open a cupboard, fallen over and hit her head hard on the corner side of the island unit. Paramedics couldn't do anything.
Another kid on the street was found wandering on the busy main road- 4 years old I think. And was able to show a stranger where he lived. The mother had gone to the corner shop (less than a 10 minute walk). He could open the door.
