Interview with Charles, Rich, Kevin, Molly, Jeremy, Chad and Laura
JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications? Charles: Yes. Rich: yes Kevin: Yes, if you could get to see the nurse. You had
to put a medical form in and the nurse would
decide if you needed to see a doctor, often you
would be better by the time you could see the doctor. Molly: no Jeremy: Yes Chad: I got sick one time, and never got seen. I sent
in multiple requests every day and finally got
some sort of cold pill for two days Laura: i couldnt walk in my cell amd get some tylenol if i
needed it but i guess so
JM: How did you get your medications? Charles: Pill line. Rich: had to inform the guard and he would let me go
down to medical-but most people lined up in the
pod 2 times a day for their meds and the guard
gave them out Kevin: The officer would take your to the nurse if your
name was called in your particular dorm. Molly: i was denied Jeremy: By going to the nurses office Chad: The officers had to administer them Laura: they did have a nurse in the jail. im sure she or he is
how you would get your medication.
JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this? Charles: 30 days in lockdown. Rich: i was caught with a valium and was sentenced to
4 hours locked in my cell with no access to
privilages Kevin: They would kick you out of the trustee dorm. Molly: i dont know Jeremy: Sent to the lockdown pod with 1 hour per day
outside the cell. Chad: It was hard to abuse drugs in the jail because
the officers administered them. the psychotic or
narcotic drugs were only given in medical and
they made sure you swallowed them. Laura: not sure. i didnt witness anything like this for myself.
they would put you in a small room by yourself. give
you time to think of something else to do.
