Angry Furious and at wits' end, son not getting care

My son has been seeking medical treatment for over 2 years. He woke one night horribly dizzy then he sustained a bad tendon injury to his arm. It has never healed after 11 months probably because his arm is in constant use getting up and down from his bunk. He finally got a lower bunk but 2 months later still quite painful. I spoke to the Family liaison who told me he needs to follow the grievance process. Both conditions continue. He has filed grievances and the prison has not responded in the time period outlined in their codes. Meanwhile my son's health is deteriorating and he is becoming more depressed by the day. Today I called the Warden and was told my call could not be put through to her office. I can't afford an attorney. What can I do to help him get the care he needs?

Here's a link to the Nevada DOC's Inspector General. Make sure your Son approves before you contact them because of possible retaliation by the prison staff.
