My father recently died July 15, 2011, he was a inmate at the federal medical center in Lexington Ky. I know this will not help him because he is gone now but I am hoping that this petition will help others who have loved ones in prison that are being denied medical attention, expecially when they are begging to be seen by a doctor because they are in so much pain, as my dad was. I have read many horrible things about the FMC Lexington F4 unit ( a locked prison inside a prison). In this part of the prison, the men are mostly bed redridden, and should be receiving around the clock care as if they were in a nursing home.
My dad would frequently complain to me and my sister that he had repeatedly asked for medical attention and would not receive any until he was rushed to the ER, with a heart attack or stroke. I am asking for congress to support the position of having all federal medical center prisons inspected regularly to ensure that inmates who are already sick, do not get neglected and die in prison. If they are not going to give them decent treatment/care, they should send them home to let their families deal with the issue. The government will save the tens of thousands of dollars being spent on medicine, treatment and surgeries for inmates. If the inmate is very sick and do not pose a threat to society, why not send them home and save tax payers dollars.
