Is it true that the FMC does not have air conditioning in this heat? Gosh even animals get air. Isn't there anything that can be done about this? If they don't have air, do they have heat in the winter?

yes it's a federal prison here in Lexington. the bureau of prisons classifies each prison according to their security level and assigns it an acronym. you have can have an FMC, FPC, FCC, FCI, USP, FTC, FDC, MCC or an MDC in your area and not even know it.

I was never an officer at FMC, however the rumor that there isn't any A/C in the summer can't be true. prisons and jails are regulated to provide habitable environments for inmates. extreme heat itself is counterproductive to inmate management, as facilities are purposely kept as cool as legally possible, to help keep inmates settle and calm, as well as regulate temperatures in big housing units that are packed with bodies. extreme heat also increases the potential of disease, which could potentially violate the rights of the inmate to a clean, safe and secure facility.

Some of the units are air conditioned and some aren't. And yes it gets very hot in the summer.
The offices are all air conditioned but it goes out all the time.

This is sad, how many former or present employees would like to talk about this........ read this posting

I spent 7 years at fmc lexington federal medical center and

can agree with these posts. i worked on the hospice team so i spend many hours on the hospital unit f4. this is a real joke of a hospital. the unit holds about 30 to 40 inmates depending on how they pack them in. i watched men die every month some who just gave up on life others who lacked the best medical care for their condition. i saw the lack of care, lack of staff to handle the inmates. there were inmates who worked to keep the hospital clean and help the nurses by changing bed sheets and keeping water filled however i hate to say it but most of them would only watch tv and sit in the a/c in the summer. i came to see one of my patients only to find ants on his face and up his nose and dirty diaper. the man was dying and someone tryed to give him coolaid to drink and spilled it then the ants walked down the call button cord and on to my patient. the hospital care is a joke.

F**k em. Sooner they die the sooner we don't have to support them with our money. I hope they don't have AC. I hope they are miserable
when I was a corrections officer, I never felt bad about the inmates being in custody, however I did empathize with them that they couldn't control their basic situation, like being hot or cold. as far as the attitude of not supporting them with our money, an answer to that is privately operated prisons and jails, however I always had the opinion that those type of corrections centers should be abolished and are counterproductive to the mission set forth by industry standards.
Why?

There are from 2000 to 3000 inmates there at any one time

I was there for 10 months. Less than 200 of the sickest have air conditioning.

Medical services are done based on the budget.

Food is a disgrace
not on vacation

Who cares? If they had not done wrong they wouldn't be there. They're paying their debt to society, not on some friggin' vacation. Maybe they'll think twice about their actions.

You think seeing a young man of 24 in for six months for income tax having his hearing aids taken because they cost more than $100.00 is ok. He couldn't hear a word for six months.

Thank a old man of 65 growing his own pot and having his teeth taken away for six months before he could even see a dentist is cool.

Ever know someone waiting for the next budget before he can get a collage student to do heart surgery?

These were all short term men. They did their time.

I had an FBI agent tell me - everyone has done something wrong - we can't put everyone in jail - we have to pick. Most you guys with an attitude are just punks that haven't been caught. I was one

Have a little compassion. Not everyone merits your attitudes

I have absolutely NO sympathy for you at all. You are in prison and MY tax dollars are paying for you. EVERYTHING you do and want in prison I AND MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS have to pay for. Hearing aids cost upwards of $5000 not $100 dumb ass. Could care less if he could hear. Could care less if that man had teeth. The fact is MY tax dollars help pay for MILLIONS of procedures every year that I can't even get on the outside. Such as heart transplants, chemo, hearing aides, teeth, knee replacements, prosthetics, etc. and I tell ya I'm SICK OF PAYING!!!

Oh please, I work in healthcare and have seen prisoners get better medical care than my own grandmother. The healthcare dollars spent on weeks in the hospital, icu, transplant list etc even when it is obviously futile is astounding.. It is dang near impossible to refuse care or withdraw care for a prisoner due to government regulations even when as I said there is obviously no hope, whereas ANY other patient would be told "I'm sorry sir there is nothing else we can do" long ago. And most of the time the conditions are self inflicted due to their IV drug use that caused them to be incarcerated anyway. All on our tax dollar?

I'm too cheap to run the air in my own house most o the time, why should I be paying for it for someone else? Kids go hungry, elderly go without their meds, and many of our disabled vets live in far worse conditions than our prisoners. Look elsewhere for sympathy please
