More questions pertaining to my class:

 

"Are your "observation cells" a part of your infirmary?"

 

"How often do you check on inmates that are on suicide precaution?"

 

"What types of "administrative" issues other than suicide can custody put an inmate in an observation cell for?"

 

"Are you involved in the strip searches of inmates in the observation cells?"

 

"When an inmate goes into an observation cell how much of their clothing do they have?"

1. the observation cells are part of the infirmary.

2. the CO check every 10min if on constant obs and q 15 if they are on close obs' The nurses must chart on the i/m q 2 hrs

3 harm to self or others and any other reason that the shift commander fells is necessary.

3. It is not necessary for the nurses to be present for the strip search but security can request our presence

4. I work at a female prison, so the i/m may have underpants, if they are on their menses and have the psychiatrist's order, otherwise the have a security smoke and a security blanket only
