doesn't surprise me at all...the medical dept is a joke...but they don't care because as far as they are concerned the inmates don't deserve decent medical treatment due to their drug addictions and life styles.....many lawsuits could be won by the families if they only knew what goes on in the medical department.

then again, heroine and Meth aren't packed with wholesome goodness and vitamin c. If she were so sick why didn't she get herself to a hospital before shevwas arrested? They complain if medical issues only after they are booked and society has to pay the bill.

Well, you both have very good points. I have heard that the medical dept. at the jail leaves something to be desired, to say the least.
Realist, you also have a point. However people that are on those drugs have a problem & are self medicating. When they go to jail, the problem & symptoms double because they obviously can longer self medicate & go through the full effects of withdrawals, plus whatever medical issues they had to begin with. You're right, meth & heroin are not packed with wholesome goodness, but most of the people using that stuff already have some sort of warped sense of self in the 1st place & helping ones own self the logical way (i.e.: going to the hospital before you get arrested) probably doesn't cross their mind.
