JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Cody: No it wasn't difficult.
Nicole: The check in process was not really lengthy, depending on what day of the week it was. Usually about 10 to 15 minutes at the most.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Cody: The environment was pretty sad and emotional. Visitation is through a video camera. Each pod had 4 video cameras. Visits could be 30 minutes.
Nicole: The visiting environment wasnt any different from any other time. The visits were through a TV screen. And the entire deck could see your visit. You would sit in front of the TV and your visitors face would appear. you would pick up a telephone to hear what they were saying. Those lasted 30 minutes.
