On our last visit, Ky was telling me about the problem he’s having getting his asthma meds. Anytime you are sick or run out of medications, you have to fill out a form and wait. Ky filled out 3 “sick calls” and 2 additional medication request forms and waited a month. Here is where he tells me that the medical department told him he could only get refills on his asthma meds once every 6 MONTHS.
What can we do about it? Not a thing. Inmates have the right to file grievances (if the staff will give you one), but most grievances are “lost” or thrown out. Even when family calls to make complaints, they are ignore them.
