I have served time at Vandalia and omg all of this is so true. I send my prayers out to all of the families that have lost a loved one while in modoc due to lack of proper medical treatment. my husband is currently incarcerated in modoc and he goes through the same thing....he files he grievences and when I call they try to feed me a line of bull crap until I say, I have served time in modoc I know policy and protocol and what he is entitled to.....then it is a whole other story. these people that work in the doc think just because your there you don't deserve proper medical treatment because they look at inmates as if they are animals. yes inmates lose a lot of rights when they become incarcerated but obtaining proper medical treatment is one right they did not lose and I will call as many times a day and send as many emails as I have to....to make sure my husband gets his. so everyone that is going through this struggle I have done it and continue to do it I will keep you all in my prayers and I will help in anyway I can.
