I say it should be on a case by case basis. It also should be limited to immediate family only..Secondly, the safety of the inmates should be first, not the officers. Even in the military, the safety of the civilians come before your own..

Hospital-exterior2009mar05 At my prison it is common practice to call a family member of an inmate anytime they are admitted for anything. I feel this opens up a whole new can of worms because now you have family members showing up wanting to visit. Many times it has been ok’d by our major for an inmate to receive visits even though the inmate is not critical. What is to stop a friend, family member, or gang rival from bringing a gun there? Even a double lifer will have his family notified because he was admitted for something as simple as cellulitis. The danger that the officers and the public can face are not being taken

It’s the same in Ohio, but we tell them the night before (after the phones are shut off) because we have to pack their personal property, which is placed in storage until they get back. That’s done so’s they’re ready when the transport officers come in at 0-dark-thirty. Our Medical department will usually call them down the day before and tell them not to eat or drink anything after such-and-such a time, so the inmates are seldom surprised when they’re told to pack their stuff.

We are a level 2 in Illinois…absolutely no visitors in the hospital…none…zero…notta. To my knowledge, IDOC doesn’t even tell an inmate when or where he will have surgery. We show up at his cell bright & early, shower him, then he’s gone. I like it like that.

That is the way it used to be here….. but we have become a kinder, more gentle form of correction…..

In my facility we do not call the inmates family when admitted, other inmates do. The inmate is allowed no visitors, or contact at anytime while in the hospital. This includes no phone calls in or out of the room.
