Interview with Collin, Robbie, Michelle and Lorrie

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Collin: They tested me for my blood sugar which was great and I don't even do that. Then they brought me my prescriptions twice a day.
Robbie: they brought medication to the people that needed twice a day.
Michelle: Yes they would give you any medications you were on when you arrive as long as they have medical records. If not you have to wait on a list to be seen for whatever you want.
Lorrie: no you only got it at bedtime

JM: How did you get your medications?
Collin: They would bring the pills to us and nurses were cute so the young guys in there went ape shit anytime they came around. To check my blood sugar they would shackle me and walk me down to the medical office which was silly because I'm not a threat to anybody.
Robbie: the nurse would come to each cell block and they would call your name and you would have to come to the front show id and they would give it to you.
Michelle: The nurse comes around to each unit and you have to get in a line and wait for your medications. If you need tylenol or anything you have to put in a sick call form.
Lorrie: the nurse came around at bedtime and all the folks that took meds and were on her sheet she passed out your medicine

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Collin: If you got caught messing around with that stuff they would add onto your time.
Robbie: I have no idea but i would expect them to take the person out of the cellblock so they could not interact with other inmates involved.
Michelle: You got a write up which included taking away your commisary or phone privileges and could result in being placed in lock up by yourself for up to 30 days at a time.
Lorrie: you were sent to medical lookup and it was cold and dark down there and they paid you no attention
