Medications

Interview with Aaron, Jessica, Walter, Margaret and Sherry

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Aaron: Yes if it was warranted. I had no need for medication and if I got a severe headache I was out of luck because I had to write to the nurse that I was having headaches and then they had to check me out at the nurse's office which normally took up 3-4 hours of my day and, no pun intended, it wasn't worth the HEADACHE.
Jessica: I didn't require any medication.
Walter: no. If you'll forgive the expression, getting medical care unless you are bleeding profously is like pulling teeth.
Margaret: NO THEY DID MEDICINE AT CERTAIN TIMES
Sherry: Sometimes but not all the time.

JM: How did you get your medications?
Aaron: A nurse came around 2-3 times a day and called out people's names to come up and get whatever they had to give you. They did it all via computer so there weren't any mess-ups. You could refuse your meds if you wanted to but you had to sign a waiver at first until they got used to your rejections and they would eventually stop calling your name.
Walter: Med pass twice a day when the nurse comes to the POD with her little medication cart. It is at tthis time that you may request/turn in a sick call to see the doctor. Even putting in this cal lto see the doctor costs an inmate $12
Margaret: A NURSE WOULD COME IN THE BLOCKS THREE TIMES A DAY, AND MAKE YOU WAIT IN A LINE THEN GIVE IT OUT.
Sherry: When you go to the clinic and get checked then the nurse would come to the pod and give your meds.

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Aaron: I didn't see any abuse of drugs or heard of any punishments laid out for that type of activity. Once in a while someone would have a cigarette that they paid way too much for and when they caught that guy with it they kicked him out of the pod which I would consider a harsh punishment considering how good we had it in there compared to the other pods.
Walter: Possibly new charges for introduction of contraband or being sent to lock down(23 hour confinement). No I never witnessed anyone getting caught doing this.
Margaret: IF YOU GOT CAUGHT ABUSING DRUGS, THEY WOULD WRITE YOU UP, PACK YOUR STUFF UP, AND PUT YOU IN A HOLDING CELL
Sherry: I believe you would go to charlie, because your taking something that did'nt belong to you, and thats another charge.
