Interview with Jenna, Diane, Norman and Andrea

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Jenna: no - i brought in my own medication & was given their version & it took over a month to get my original meds returned once i was released - also my doctor was in shock as to what they gave me - it had nothing to do with my meds - fortunately for me the gave me psyc med that pretty much kept me out of it - i couldn't have planned it better myself if i tried
Diane: no
Norman: no in order to get any medical you had to fill out a request form and wait to be called to be seen by the nurse and at times that took hours before you would be seen
Andrea: no, not allowed meds from home & they rarely have the ones that are prescribed, so they have to switch to the closest thing they have. As a side thought, that is really not a good thing to do

JM: How did you get your medications?
Jenna: a nurse i suppose - but not one that actually knew what was going on - i am hoping it was not a nurse just an assistant - its a scary thought if it was really someone in the health care profession - they would be better suited for a prison death house
Diane: I didn't take any
Norman: you would have to wait for the nurse or medical to come or put in the request in order to get your medications
Andrea: i personally switched to whatever they had that was close enough to what i was taking & i just didn't take the other ones

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Jenna: never saw abuse - solitary confinement if you refuse to take meds
Diane: Not sure I never did that
Norman: i dont know because i never witnessed anything like that nor did i have any problems like that or hear about anything regarding that
Andrea: i imagine solitaire confinement and another additional charge, i never witnessed anything while i was in, there was never an issue
