Being in jail can be an incredibly difficult and stressful situation. On top of dealing with the legal issues surrounding your case, you may also have pressing medical needs that require attention. Fortunately, you have a constitutional right to receive adequate medical care while incarcerated. Here is some key information on how to go about getting the care you need while in jail in New York City.
When you are first admitted to jail, you will go through a medical screening process. Be upfront about any medical conditions you have or medications you are taking. The medical staff will ask you questions and take your vitals to identify any immediate health issues that need addressing. Make sure to mention:
Don’t assume your conditions are in your records. Verbally inform the medical staff of your complete health status. This ensures you get proper care right from the start.
After the initial screening, you can request medical attention at any time by:
Explain your symptoms and health concerns clearly on the request form or when speaking to staff. This helps them appropriately triage and treat your issues. Be persistent if your needs aren’t being met. Continue submitting request forms regularly until you get the required care.
Jails in NYC must provide incarcerated people access to healthcare that meets community standards. The quality and timeliness should be similar to what you could receive if you weren’t locked up. Services offered can include:
If the jail cannot provide appropriate treatment internally, they must send you to an outside hospital or specialist.
Inmates in the NYC jail system do not have to pay anything for medical visits, tests or medications given while locked up. All health services are free as part of your right to healthcare in jail. However, you may receive medical bills after release for any community hospitalizations that occurred during incarceration.
Make sure the medical staff knows about ALL prescription medications you take on a regular basis. Provide the exact names and dosages. The doctor may prescribe alternatives if your regular meds aren’t on the jail’s formulary.
Getting medications usually takes one to two days after the initial request. If there is a delay, explain your symptoms to staff so they understand you urgently need the meds. Some tips:
Your health information is protected by HIPAA privacy laws, even while incarcerated. No one will have access to your records or know about your medical visits without your written consent. The exception is if staff need to know to preserve health and security within the facility. Talk to the medical team about any confidentiality concerns.
If you feel you aren’t getting appropriate or timely care for your medical needs, you have options:
Threatening or abusive language is never okay. But firm, respectful persistence can get results. Document all health requests submitted, medications not dispensed, delays in care or denials of treatment. Specific details help substantiate complaints over medical care.
Reaching out for help ensures your basic health needs are met while navigating the criminal justice system in New York. Report new symptoms right away and keep requesting care until issues are properly addressed. With self-advocacy and support services, you can get through this difficult period safely.
