Default "Courtesy" visit to York CI?

Hi all,

It doesn't appear this particular sub-forum gets much traffic, but hopefully someone will see this and can help..

My wife was recently sentenced to York CI in Niantic. From what I've been able to gather from her so far, she is currently in some sort of medical holding unit for 7 days before she gets placed into general population. She's only allowed 5 minute phone calls, so it's hard for me to get any information, and from what she's told me it's almost impossible for her to get any information.

Based on what she's been told and the very little detail that's in the Family Handbook, it takes about 30 days for her visitor list to be approved. In the meantime she's allowed 2 non-contact courtesy visits by an immediate family member. Do I just show up at some point during the facilities posted visiting hours, or do I need to prearrange the visit? If so how? It's a fairly long drive and I have to arrange someone to watch the kids, so I don't want to show up only to be turned away.

I've tried on multiple occasions to call the prison. If I stay on the line after the message to get transferred to an operator, it just keeps ringing and nobody answers. If I press the number to get transferred to the "Visitation Clerk", I get a message that nobody is available and to call back later. I've called during the week, on the weekend, during business hours, in the morning, in the evening, always the same thing. It's really getting frustrating.
