JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications? Jeffery: If necessary, im sure. I had a back problem and the nurse signed off
a slip allowing me a second padded mattress to sleep on. Serena: i am bipolar so i take medications and i did have
access. Gary: They do med-call in the AM (5am) and PM (6pm).
JM: How did you get your medications? Jeffery: If you needed meds you would have to fly a request form to the
guards who place it in the appropriate hands to evaluate. Serena: medications were distributed by a medical nurse who
visited at certain hours of the day. the nurse was
very nice. Gary: I didn't take them.
JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this? Jeffery: More than a few guys got busted with tobacco and either got
solitary or their good behavior credits taken away. Serena: i never witnessed any abuse of drugs and i do not
know what punishments would be meted out for being
caught with them.
