Three times my son has been hospitalized without a word to me from the facility. I talked to a nurse this morning. All I wanted to know was if he was in any danger because 2 weeks ago a nurse had him leave his blood pressure medication in her office so now he has to walk over to her office twice a day to take the blood pressure medication. The fact that he is on dialysis three times a week and suffering from kidney failure doesn't matter. It's what the nurse wants that matters, and she was not authorized by any doctor to conficate his meds. Once before during a lock down the guys were without their medication for three days. I asked when they notified the family? is it after an inmate has died. The nurse told me " that is different. I guess it is.

I am so sorry you went through this...this is one of my biggest fears. My son is being sent down there from Alaska very soon. He is autistic and won't tell anyone when he is sick...By the time they realized he was ill at all he had to be ambulanced to th ER center here with double pneumonia..... You can bet I will be calling every senator, congressman, and whoever else it takes to make sure they know that he DOES have someone out here who cares for him!!!!! Hangin there...God Bless us all!!!!

Hi ladies,
I'm so sorry to hear of the worries and concerns that you've had to experience on top of those that already come with the territory. My loved one is on the way to Hudson now and I'm trying to learn all I can. The only good news I have found is that all the Alaskan prisoners in Colorado are supposed to be back in state at Goose Creek by September 2013.
Best wishes to you and your sons.
