Sunspot says mercury spill isn't behind mysterious evacuation and insists Trump's Supreme Court nominee denies bombshell claim of drunken sex attack when he was For many inmates, it's not worth the hassle of going to the infirmary and waiting three days to see a doctor for something like the flu, a cold or a headache.
As a result, drug costs drop. Prisoner complaints not surprisingly have skyrocketed. Said a nurse who worked in this system, "… from the beginning you are taught to treat them mean…There was never anything wrong with an inmate. Anybody that treats them nice is called an inmate lover…A nurse is supposed to look at an inmate," she says, "but sometimes they'll turn down a request if they judge the inmate has already been seen.
They'll write a 'no-show' on appointments because the inmate can't get out for security reasons. A guard might fail to get them out for various reasons, or there might be a lockdown. A lot of focus is on getting rid of the sick-call requests. Databases of inmates' medical grievances, findings of doctors who review the deaths of inmates, inspection reports of dialysis facilities, correspondence among prison health-care administrators and inspections of prison health-care facilities are all private in Texas.
But the care in the clinics, in the prison was not the same at the hospital in Galveston. Inmates knew it, and they also knew there was one sure-fire way to get to Galveston: Join an experimental drug trial. Become a biomedical research "guinea pig" for UTMB.
Until late , UTMB conducted dozens and possibly hundreds of trials without telling state prison officials what it was doing — violating a long-standing prison system rule. Inmates knew about the trials, however, and as they came to understand the failures of the prison health-care system, they agreed to join the drug tests.
Their decisions weren't so much willing as they were fatalistic. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential," reads the Nuremberg Code of , which was drafted in direct response to the sheer barbarity of Nazi-era medical experiments on Jews and other captive groups. However, following many exposes and investigations by the early s, such practices had been greatly diminished.
Texas, however, was at the forefront of the few states continuing this notorious tradition. Federal officials found "scant evidence" in a July inspection that the University of Texas Medical Branch had followed regulations for protecting prisoners enrolled in medical research trials. Convicts had not been fully informed of the risks in some tests. In one study, the federal regulators alleged, prisoners with ovarian cancer were asked to sign a consent form that vastly overstated the benefits of participation.
According to federal regulations, research in prisons must fit into one of four permissible categories: In all cases, studies are required to present no more than a "minimal" risk to the prisoner. Yet in many of the clinical trials reported to OHRP, those regulations were clearly violated. Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request offer insight into the types of studies conducted on prisoners at UTMB. Listed studies included those on induction of labor among pregnant inmates; a study of different methods of obtaining biopsies from inmates; a Phase I clinical trial used to test a new drug or treatment for the first time in a small group involving an experimental HIV vaccine; and another using a new experimental therapy of the intrahepatic directly into the liver delivery of a powerful chemotherapy drug.
Perhaps most shocking was a Phase I study, ongoing since , that used prisoners to test a radically experimental approach to treating lung cancer. In that study, the prisoner was anesthetized and then connected to a machine called the BioLogic-HT System. According to the consent form, the test subject would agree to be heavily sedated and then to have tubes inserted into veins in the leg and neck to obtain blood.
The blood removed from the volunteer would then be heated by the machine and returned to the body, inducing a dangerously high body temperature of The consent form for the study cites a long list of serious potential side effects, including brain and spinal cord damage, loss of limbs, heart attack, hallucination, memory loss, burns at body pressure points, congestive heart failure, internal bleeding, seizures and death. While consent forms for experimental studies typically do list a wide array of possible complications, this form carried the additionally disturbing warning that the university would not compensate a research subject in case of injury.
Participants in the study signed a form that read: Yet while UTMB was given specific guidance on how to improve its reporting, reviewing and informed consent procedures, at no point, confirms the OHRP, were any of the prisoners in these studies interviewed about their experiences as test subjects. Paperwork was submitted by the university in response to concerns raised by the OHRP.
On the basis of that paperwork—although no further site visits were made—the researchers were given the go-ahead by the OHRP in mid-January to resume their work, although it is unclear which of the objectionable studies were allowed to continue.
Keith Curry, a Washington-based psychologist issued damning findings in a report he prepared for prisoners' attorneys in the Ruiz prison reform lawsuit.
Curry, who works for Applied Forensics LLP, is an expert witness who has worked on prison mental-health cases in several other states. Curry reviewed the records of 68 convicts who had been in segregation from one month to 17 years.
The average was 5. In all, prison officials say, a little more than 6, mentally ill inmates are in administrative segregation statewide. Curry reported finding mentally ill convicts whose medication had been improperly halted and were too disoriented to appeal. A shortage of trained staff meant that mentally ill inmates weren't properly monitored by prison medical personnel. Routine blood tests weren't taken or logged into medical records, despite a requirement that tests be given with certain drugs.
Inmates suffered painful and debilitating side effects from their drug treatment, but received no proper treatment in response. He says, "The provision of mental health care in Texas prisons is abysmal. A system like this is not good for inmates and not good for Texas. Some Texas tax money appears to have been spent helping UTMB bid on providing health services for jails in New York City and for prison systems in other states.
And a quarter of a million dollars goes to two highly paid -- and apparently underworked -- administrators who were once employed by the prison system. On and on, I could go and this is only medical conditions. You can imagine what other conditions are like.
And this is only Texas. The end of federal oversight does not mean conditions are now acceptable. As the letter below as well as the first two stories above show, all is far from well. If you know anyone who can look into the situation of medical care in Texas prisons, get them to do it. If you are a healthcare worker of any kind, get your union, your professional organization, whatever, to take a stand on prison healthcare and the brutality of Texas prisons.
One other action you might consider. I was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and hepatitis C. I was released in April of 99 and returned on a violation in December of Since my incarceration here my health has seriously declined due to lack of proper medical care. I am in the end stages of cirrhosis now, and all they tell me is that there is nothing they can do for me, well thetas what they have told me since I was diagnosed.
There are things they could do for me ,but don't. I applied for special needs parole and was denied. I had to take it upon myself to apply for that. All medical ever tells me is that I am dying and I have to accept that, well I've always been a fighter, but the fight is getting harder. These people over medical here, in my opinion, would not make good animal doctors.
You just cannot imagine the mental anguish I go through daily knowing that my life is in the hands of a bunch of un professionals. I fully intend to fight until I draw my last breath, to try and help others in the same situation and see justice done for all of the ones that have suffered due to the neglect of medical care here.
The only medication I have been on for years are vitamins and water pills. I have only had one ultra sound on my liver, no biopsy. They only speculate on the serious aspects of my condition, due to my critical labs and symptoms. I have taken so many water pills that my kidneys don't work on their own. If there is anyone out there that reads this letter. I am not asking for sympathy, only empathy, Just because a person makes mistakes in their life don't mean they deserve to die in the process.
Hopefully there will be an attorney or even a judge that will look into these matters, everyone in the system can't be telling a lie.
I really do think that these accusations against the State prison Medical Facilities and U. Ask yourselves if you had a loved one in the system would you want then to be neglected this way? Take a chance on us, we are only women trying to survive on the inside.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. If there is anyone out there that may be willing to help, please contact me. I go home August 23rd address upon release has been provided Update: Mary was rushed by ambulance to hospital and she was sent home as she is dying.. Wichita Falls, Texas Sources: The following information came in today. This is in regards to Brenda mentioned above.
From James West, M. Cluster Medical director Gatesville Cluster Re: For the last 4 weeks she has been having shortness of breath and nocturnal dyspnea secondary to ascites, possible early failure and consuming 3 liters of fluid a day. I have put her on a fluid restriction and increasing doses of Lasix and Enalapril to mobilize her fluid. To date she has lost 8 pounds. Today I added Spironolactone to her medications. I will see her weekly until she is no longer dyspneic. Record review shows no complaints of vomiting blood in the last 6 months or more.
I never told her she would be hospitalized soon. She has a G. She is being seen on a weekly basis now because of her complaints of shortness of breath, not because of any pressure put on the medical staff. She was seen in Galveston 8 times last year and she has been seen in our clinic 10 times by a primary care provider this year. I hardly think that this represents her being "left to die" or "ignoring" her condition.
Chart search shows no recorded fever in the last 6 months. From Brenda to an outside advocate: I just wanted to drop a line to say a few things about me and my illness. I may not spell some of the things that good, but you'll know what it is. These are the illnesses I have 1 I am a diabetic 2 I have hepatitis b and c 3 Amonia in my blood 4 Cirrossis of the liver liver failure 6 My stomach is so full of fluid look like I have 2 babies 7 Gall stones 8 I get so weak, some mornings I can't even get up unless I feel like throwing up.
The doctor gave me some finagrin for it. I tried to tell the doctor, she didn't do anything for me, she just brushed me away every time I complained about it My eye is bloodshot really bad and I told the nurse today when I went to get my insulin.
She wouldn't examine me, she told me to drop a sick call. One thing is I am scared to write this letter, will you make sure you won't let the people do anything to retaliate. But also I am so scared to die in here. I am so sick my eyes are black underneath.
I am laying down as I write because every time I sit up I get dizzy. I don't want to die in here. They say that there is nothing else they can do for me…. I was throwing up blood and a nurse came in to check me.
Well guess what she brought me.. I signed the papers for you to get my medical records…Thanks Brenda In regards to those complaints he does acknowledge "…shortness of breath and nocturnal dyspnea secondary to ascites, possible early failure… , he says he will "… see her weekly…" Remember this is a person who has diabetes, liver failure, hepatitis B and C.

I am writing a male right now that is on death row that I feel should not be on it. He is a warm hearted man. He deserves to be out or at least off of death row It saddens me to read about the death row inmates. I believe there is no way for me to understand their pain and suffering but I can tell you for sure how a victim of rape and child molestation feels. As a Christian I forgive them, as a victim I want them to rotten in hell.
We are all entitled of our own opinion and that is mine. I used to be all for the Death Penalty. I was molested, raped, and abused from the time I was 8 until I was big enough at 14 to lay out a man with a rock. I had so much hate in me and like many others turned to drugs to medicate my pain. I almost killed a trick when I was 26 yrs old. Made me think about the death sentence a little different. Now with the use of DNA, look how many people have been released from prison after doing many long years of time that no amount of "Oops We all know there are so many innocent people in jail.
Money buys freedom honey and that's a fact. Judges, police and lawyers are just people. They make mistakes also.

Death row is a very delicate and in a way special topic, because it deal with human beings life. I am currently in college double majoring in Sociology and Psychology, and yes it will be very helpful to learn more about death row.
As a Swede I can hardly understand the meaning of a death penalty. In many if not most cases we are dealing with mentally disordered people who run a great risk of committing horrible crimes,which they can't be held responsible for.
In our country most of the people you set on a death row in USA end up in a mental institution and get psychiatric aid in stead of a death penalty. My best regards, Erik Forsgren Sweden lillaerik hotmail. I as the others I am sure feel that my quest to reach you is unique. I am a published author.
