Topic: Security Central / Padded cells for our mentally ill inmates. Yes? Or No?

I work in a unit that houses nothing but mental health inmates and we do not have any padded cells or need them. The first thing to know is the inmates baseline and if they are acting contrary to this. When an inmate is starting to go squirrly, a mental health couselor is called in to do an assessment of their condition. Depending on the need, they are either put in a holding cell for further evaluation or moved to the facility hospital and put into a seclusion room. If further action is needed they are put onto a 4 point restraint table to calm down or given a sedative by the medical staff. Then their medication history is reviewed and their meds are adjusted if needed. A rubber room is not the way to deal with an out of control inmate because they do not get the proper treatment for their illness.

Topic: Security Central / Inmates and disposable razors

Try doing a one for one exchange. If they are altered then they do not get a new one. Then kick in their cell and do a search for the contraband.
