Default Kern Vally State Prison won't tell me how he's doing after surgery!!!!!

Ugh so frustrated right now, he was taken out for emergency surgery yesterday. Went rounds with the prison today, even though they have the emergency contact papers and a hippa release, they won't give any info. They flat out told me the only info they would release to me is in the event that he dies. Do I really want to hear that right now?????? Grrrrrrr. They said the authorization forms don't mean anything to them, he has a right to privacy........

Unfortunately thats how it is. No info unless the inmate is deceased or near death. Very sad how they make the family worry. Hope your loved one has a speedy recovery.

Is the HIPAA release that was executed one that THEY had him sign or is this one that was executed prior to going to prison? Yes, it makes a difference in how an agency is going to view the request...

I have seen Hippa papers signed at the prison facility only serve it's function within the walls of the health unit. Because outside the doorway and walls of the health unit are the confines of the prison and hippa rules do apply in the confines of the prison.
That doesn't make us feel any better that is for sure- but believe me I have seen it!

I hope your LO makes a full and speedy recovery.Unfortunately most prisons consider an inmate being in a hospital as a security risk so they are unlikely to give any information unless the situation is severe and life threatening.
