Plenty of People in jail get treated unfairly. They dont receive their medicine, no medical treatment if they get hurt or get sick in jail. There are plenty out there that can relate to this. Stories of what happens in jail are something else. I know you think if there in jail they deserve it, but I don't think so.

If they are in jail they obviously did something wrong, so why should our tax dollars go to pay for them to receive treamtment? Most of them are using the system anyways. If they dont receive their medications than the doctor didnt order it, and there is a nurse that comes in and checks all complaints. Sounds as if you were in jail, you are probably mad because they do not pass out narcotics!!!
oh please

It hain't a resort or spa. Keep your nose and you can drag you sick a$$ to the ER. The county has to pay for your medical care while you are incarcerated so I don't blame them for not getting treatment. How often do you people need a doctor?? I go don't go running to dr's and er's every time I get a fart crossed and other people shouldn't either. Whatever is ailing you, give it a few days, it will usually go away. Pills, Pills, Pills, and more Pills. That is why Scioto County is #2 in the state. Aren't we proud??

I wasn't in jail, but i know for a fact that the pills that people take in they need to take for health reasons their medication isn't given to them and they don't get all their medication when they leave. such as pain pills. you can break your arm in there and you will stay there. they don't take you hospital or anything because they have to pay for it. The smart ones that thought i had been in there evidently are stupid. I cant see in jail. why should they let you snort pills off the beds in the jail or smoke(when smoking isn't allowed) how do you think they get the pills and cigaretts, Oh no not the deputies? That is not right. Somthing needs done. Aren't there camera's in jail or they just don't care, guess it depends on who you are also.
whatever

To "fixit" you are an absoloute idiot. They cant pass pain meds in jail, and if the inmates are on actual medications for diabetes, bp, or something like that than they do get the meds. I dont know where or from which inmate you are getting info from but it is wrong. And if somebody gets seriously hurt in the jail than they do go for treatment. And no its not the deputies that bring in the cigarettes and the pain pills that are beng snorted, its the idiotic inmates that smuggle them back in after going to the hospital for treatment. The deputies that work in the jail do their job. Yeah, the county (our tax dollars) do have to pay for the stupid inmates to go to the hospital, do you realize how much money the county would be paying out if they took every inmate to the hospital everytime they said they were hurt? There is a nurse on staff and a doctor. Unless you actually know what goes on there than I suggest you shut up and find something else to complain about. The deputies do a great job. If it was up to me the inmates would only get bread and water to eat and drink, they wouldnt get to watch tv or anything else. They would sit in their dorm / cell and thats it. They are there for a reason, not for luxury or a vacation.

I've taken care of inmates before at somc so I know they get treated. I've taken care of many for chest pain. So that's a bunch of bs. I'm not sure who's feeding you full of that crap but they are just pissed they didn't get royal treatment while in jail.

From what I was told before, if you miss your medication several times in a row, they stop bringing it around at med time. So if it's very early when they pass it, and you're asleep and miss it when they yell it's time, it's your own fault if that's what the policy is. They do not give narcotics.

I was on antibiotics, and was told 2 days in a row that I "refused" my meds, which didnt happen, also had a broken jaw fro a car wreck and even though other people asked for a doctor to see me, the said i had to have money in my account to pay the small fee and since it was a friday i had to wait several days to get the money in my account, now i have never been in trouble before and it was not a drug or alcohol offense, but there were 2 pregnant women in there too sick to get out of their bunks to go outside who pobably needed attention. Im sure the officers do their best, and most people deserve to suck it up and tough it out, i did for the short time i was there, but the worst thing was 30-40 women, most on their periods at the same time and not having enough pads or toilet paper, it was unsanitary.

To "Gzz" me being fkn rude? Whats rude is wasting our tax dollars on getting idiots treated, but to be honest I dont think there is an medication or cure the idiot syndrome. I beleive if you are in jail, than you get what you deserve. If you dont want to take the chance of getting "mistreated" , or not getting your medication (pain meds) than I suggest that you dont go to jail
sorry

To whatever Do you work in the jail or something? I know they cant distribute pain meds dummy, but if you are perscribed pills and they have the bottles and you dont get them i wonder why! When you leave you dont get what was taken in the bottles are about gone and the inmate sure didn't get them. The drugs are brought in by the ones that get to go out and work they are never checked when they come back in. AND who I am talking about didn't get to see the nurse. Don't tell me they dont treat the inmates like shit and keep their meds for themselves. If your the son of one of the deputies or state patrol or city cops you sure get treated with pills, cigs, anything your heart desires even if your a druggie and should be where your at. So get wise, Even if you shouldn't have got in trouble and ended up in jail you still shouldnt have the guards taking your meds that was perscribed to you by your doctor and told to bring the bottles in we will make sure you get them. Right.
