Unhappy HELP My dad was sent to the hospital

Hi, Im new here, and really new to the prison world as well. My father and I recently reconnected after 20ish years of not speaking, and he is in Staton Correctional Facility. Today I got a phone call from another inmates family saying my dad complained of chest pains and the took him away in an ambulance. I don't know who to contact to find out if he is okay, or where they took him or anything. Does anyone have any advice at all??

Thank you!

Most often the only person they will communicate with is the person listed as his emergency contact and even then the information is pretty limited.

If his facility has a chaplain or he has a case worker/counselor, you can try calling and leaving a message for them. Explain you are his daughter, you learned he was transferred to a hospital for chest pain and you are concerned. Be prepared that they may not be able to tell you anything.

I'm so sorry, I can imagine you are quite worried. Let us know if you how things go.

I believe I am listed as his emergency contact but the prison hasn't called me yet.. the only information I'm really looking for is that he is alive. I understand the security risk in telling where he is and whatnot. I've tried calling the prison but I get transferred twice then the phone just rings and rings with no answering machine or anything. Guess it's a waiting game.

That's so frustrating. :/

I'm not sure how AL handles things but I know the emergency contact for my husband in CA is only notified in the case of his passing. If that's true for AL, I'm glad they haven't called you. Hang in there, hun.
