I work in a county jail (approx. 120 inmates currently) and since arriving there we have reduced our med passes from four times per day to three. It has allowed for more to be done on days considerably; however, with only two RN's we are still behind on getting our physicals done in a timely manner which is not acceptable to me.
The reason we are unable to complete physicals in a fashionable amount of time is the computer system we currently use now separates the medical intake from the actual physical. There is nothing I can do about the computer system we are using.
I recently recieved a DOC inmate who stated their med passes were only BID. Does anyone have any experience with just doing med passes twice a day? Is it done in any other facilities?
