Can anyone tell me how a prisoner is handled in a local ER/hospital. Does the prisoner give consent for tx if he is competent. Does the officer give consent if the prisoner is incompetent (change in LOC, substances on board, etc.) What if the officer wants prisoner treated and the prisoner refuses. What if the officer wants a drug or alcohol screen and a competent prisoner refuses. I am in West Virginia so in-state replies would be helpful. Thanks!
