THE LEXINGTON MEDICAL CENTER IS REFUSING THE IMATES PROPER MEDICAL CARE WHEN THEY ASK TO SEE THE DOCTOR FOR A SICK CALL,THEY ARE REFUSED.ONE MAN ASK AND ASK MANY TIMES.HE Die when they took him to the E.R..They also have the skin eating baterial.My son is a hemophilliac and he need surgery for a herina and they refuse him when Juge Legg in baltimore Maryland oder him to be sent to a federal Medical Center so he could get the right medical care.All inmates have the right for surgery if they need it and the right for medical care.The federal medical center is looking out for their budget instead of the lives of the inmates.

This really scares me my husband is in there and has a disease that forms tumors. Well he just recently found out he has cancerous tumors on his kidneys. I keep hearing only bad things about how they treat the inmates medically. I hope everything works out for your son and he gets the help he needs.

For starters why does this site say that the last comments were made in 2006? I think it's because they dont want people to know that people currently have complaints about this place. My father recently died at Fmc while in the in the F-4 unit. I have started a petition to bring awareness to this place. Please go to the the link and read my story and sign the petition. I know it wont help my father, but hopefully it will help someone you know that is receiving less than decent care at this place. If you really want change, share your story and sign this petition. Copies will go to leaders in congress as well as the president. If you have worked there or currently working there and you are aware of wrong doing at this facility, please tell what you know and sign the petition. You can remain anonymous by clicking the box that says dont show my name.

I left FMC over a year ago. I survived a ten year sentence. The conditions are terrible and the staff even worse but unfortunately health care is given to those who keep quiet rather than those who publicly complain. Kissing up to the medical staff is very hard but necessary. Advice, request medical records every 90 days, copy them an send a copy home. This is a major safty item and they cannot denyyou the records. Put everything in writing. The form "cop out" (which staff requires all the time) can work for you. I filed hundreds of cop outs and remedies. I memoralized everything in writing - it drives staff crazy but it saved my life.

I want to start out by saying I am sorry for your loss. I thank you for making this known. We all need to stick together and make this "right" I have a loved one in there right now and this just made me really face reality of what he is going thru.
I encourage EVERYONE to post this on your FACEBOOK as I have done. Most of my friends I know will sign because justice needs to be served. Gob Bless

Does anyone know if something is wrong with the phone lines at the FMC, my son has not texted in two days, and he always text me every day. Is anyone else having the same problem?

My brother is in Lexington medical facility. He is a diabetic, has heart problems (has had heart attacks and strokes). He had to have all his toes amputated. He was at another facility and his pleas for an infected toenail were ignored, thus the amputation. He is confined to a wheel chair and is on oxygen. He has fluid built up around his heart, instead of drawing the fluid off (that's what the doctor did for me) they will only give him one third cup of water. Not only will he become dehydrated, this is cruel as with diabetes you get thirsty. In my opinion the doctors do not know what they are doing or just do not care. My brother should be home because he poses no threat to anyone. His sentence was too harsh for the offence in the first place.

My dad is in this place, he has one lung and its in bad shape, he is in wheel chair and on oxygen and over 70. people like this should be sent home, Feds made an example of him with a harsh sentence concerning 17,000 dollars. they sentenced him to over 6 years. because it was federal money they threw the book at him if it was state money he would have got his hand slaped. Elderly should be let out early, just look at the savings it would create. Everybody please write news papers and Congress. God bless all those with family in this place.

I spent years in this place and can tell you that the medical is a joke. I watched My friend George wither away to a bag of bones, as he suffered from cancer, and when he passed away nothing was said. you just never see them anymore. as if they vanish. many times we spoke and he would tell me that they refused him a compassionate release. we do not get to see our doctors really. we get to see P.A's. however it is not totally impossible to get medical help there. as I knew a fellow inmate who did get a hernia operation. I also have a hernia and my P.A. told me there was nothing that could be done for me. I told him about the other inmate getting the surgery and his reply to me was "oh well he was lucky, your not lucky" they do as little as possible and the HCU is a very sad place as some are put there to wait to die. and we have to watch these people wither away it is very sad. another friend of mine was eating chicken and got a bone wedged in his throat, thankfully it was wedged to where he could still breath. but staff did not take him seriously. as they sent him to central clinic in the building, and he sat for several hours as they did nothing. then they finally sent him to the outside hospital where he had to wait several more hours, and when they finaly saw him they pushed the bone down his throat into his stomach and sent him right back to the prison. for the most part this place is a prison. medical center? I don't think so. well maybe if you are lucky.

The elderly deserve to pays their dues the same as younger inmates. They obviously did something to be sentenced anyways. I hate hearing about the bad medical attention because they deserve the help.

My son is there on a 90 day trial to see if they are able to care for him he has h a rare condition called xlp like cancer he has had a hip replacement and still in need of his other hip to be replaced he has had 2 bone marrow transplants. And he finaly told me just the other day his blood counts aren't what they should be I know he has to pay for his crime but I truelly hope they decided to send him home on. House arrest cause my son is 21 and deserves his medical care his crime was theft and he faces up to 10 years for the crime cause he stole a gun I hate he did what he did but 10 yrs is a long time

I hope by this being post that people will see and read what is happing there.The reason why the inmates isn't getting the proper care,Lexington don't want to spend the money for their medical cost,My son is a Hemophilliac it's take a 100,000.00 a year for his medical care and they are only using 85,000.00 on him or least then that.They won't even give him ensure to drink.When they do surgery on the inmates,they have more problems than before the surgery.I don't understand why the government don't do anything about this,maybe because the government and Congress is in on it.Everyone know putting people in jail is a money making thing for the people that work there.

While I was there between 05 and 09 you figure out quick that nobody cares. you are a number, a statistic, the drudge of society. staff does not care. there are exceptions and the ones who do care are powerless to do anything. the warden at the time was Stephen Dewalt. he was finally leaving around the time of my release but he took away so many things from us. they banned sugar under his rule among other things and the man would pick arguments with inmates just so he could throw the in the hole. how can anyone feel anything but contempt for such a man. even the C.O's hated him. when you are locked up for years you learn how to survive anyway you can. and well honestly you build a rapport with some of the C.O's some are genuine people. they just want to do their hours and get the hell out of there just like we want to do our years and do the same thing. but for the most part most of the staff are hard hearted people with little feeling for us. to them we are dogs in a kennel. and that is exactly how you feel in this place. the one piece of advice I can give anyone who has a loved one there is to make sure to write them often and send money when you can as that is the only comforts we have and getting mail is a big deal to us. it seems like a little thing but it means a whole lot.
