There is probably nothing more frightening than having a loved one in prison; now imagine that fear being compounded by knowing that they may not be receiving the prison medical care they need.

The keys to a productive, healthy prison life and to surviving prison and the prison medical health system are often as simple as having an advocate like AER making sure that institutional staff is aware that there are people that care and will take action. Coordinated contacts by phone, email and fax to administrative and medical staff often spur action where previously there were only excuses and delays.
When we were first contacted by an elderly gentleman’s family, they felt that no one cared and they had nowhere to turn. Their father had fallen down a flight of stairs and severely injured his back. Despite x-rays and other tests that revealed the seriousness of his injury, he was sent back to his cell with ibuprofen. He languished there for over two weeks unable to get up out of bed.
It took less than two days for AER’s prison medical advocates to get our client the wheelchair he so desperately needed and get him moved to a first floor cell. He was also assigned a personal needs assistant to help with his daily needs; his prison life was immediately and drastically improved. A week later AER received a letter from the Associate Warden apologizing for the “misunderstanding.”
