Do you get hazard pay? Homocide insurance for your family? That seems scary to me; although, I never even thought about it before. So... another question- Since inmates are the only americans gauranteed health care, do they get all around good care? What about chemo and such?
No hazard pay or homicide insurance, but that sounds like it might be a viable business oportunity.
I have never felt unsafe in prison, you are security minded but in prison you know who the bad people are. Use common sense and relize who you are dealing with, after all they ar not John/Jane Q Public and you will be safe.
As far as healthcare whe have prisons with chemo unit, dialysis units, LTC facilities. We have provide joint replacements, organ transplants pretty much everything except sex change surgery. The i/m are provided with medications that are not covered by my prescription insurance.
We provide dentures.
Do the i/m think they are receiving good care, probably not, but they are provided with care that is based on community standards.
We refer the i/m to multiple specialists.
