Topic: The Club House / Hospitalized Inmates getting visits?

Oh, I completely understand the security issues, My concern is why I cannot get a status report on his condition, I was told that if possible, before they take him to surger that they might contact me, I just think about the 3 nights & 4 days he layed at the local jail, in the pain he was in, Even being told by a sgt. on duty that indeed he needed to go to the hospital, but they couldn’t do anything until the nurse gave permission to, also was told do you know how much it cost the state for an imate to be hospitalized, Now what is going to happen to him, when & if he gets returned to the jail, are they going to take care of him, esp. pain wise, because it will take a long time, for the injuries he has to heal. Time is a big issue here, I did leave a message for another attorney not the one who is representing on his case, but one who can give me advise, for legal steps in starting a lawsuit against the local detention center for the neglect of my brother. Thanks for any help in this matter.

Topic: The Club House / Hospitalized Inmates getting visits?

My 50 yr. old brother has been in jail for 2 yrs. waiting to go to trial, On a Friday, he as attacked by another inmate, which left my brother with a Punctured Collapsed Lung, 4 Ribs, that were completely broken into, 3 fractured ribs, etc. He immediately ask to be t, aken to the hosptial, because he could not breathe, and was in severe pain, I made over a dozen phone calls, trying to get him taken, with only being told that the week-end nurse, would have to authorize it, but she didn’t only thing she done was prescribe ibuprofen, They finally took him on that following Monday evening, to the hospital and was immediately admitted for the conditions listed above, also since his kidneys has not worked since friday, today Tuesday, they had to catherize him, He has a chest tube in to drain the lood from his body, where he has been laying at the local jail for 4 days hemmoraging, They are going to have to do surgery to wire the 4 broken ribs together, Needless to say he is in Critical Condtion, My problem is they won’t even let him have a visit, from me, since I am his sole provider throughout all of this, My parents passed away 2mth apart, so since being his only sister, I treat him like he was one of my children, But tell me why in his condition, why i could not visit, He has a Officer there 24/7 at his door, they even said, its not like he could get and and run, he can’t even get up to walk yet. So do you think when I file papers against the jail for neglect, for letting him lay for days before getting medical treatment, this will open there eyes up, And if the worse was to happen, and he dies, i bet they would want me to have his body removed before it even got cold. He has a long road to recovery, and i have been told do you know what this is causing the state? Any advice on what I should do in this circumstance? Where to I start from, do I wait to file papers, or wait until he is released? Thanks for any help & advice.
