I am so sorry they are not giving you information. I am praying you find out what the code is. Prayers for you and your son.

I just don't understand how a captain in the prison system says he don't have the code to give the hospital to get information on my son's condition and he's okay but I later find out that he's in the hospital for the next five days getting a procedure done on his face there's got to be something i can do

Unfortunately you can't do anything. I'm sorry this happened but they most likely won't give you the information as to what hospital he's in as he's an inmate and they worry about safety and security as well as escape risk.

I'm sorry but he's the property of the Department of Corrections. Their house, their rules. It sucks but that's the way it is.

Hopefully, someone at the prison can and will give you updates.

Hang in there WvRob. I know you are beyond worried about your son. It's hell not to be able to be there for them to comfort and care for them. Take comfort in knowing your son is not in critical condition. Praying you hear from him soon. I'm sure your son can't wait to reach out to you and to let you know he is okay.

It's great that he is in a real hospital, where he will receive the same care as anyone else. The federal bop was even able to force the hospital I was in to ignore the HIPAA law, the excuse was "safety and security", which many sins done by the prison "keepers" are concealed behind.

Check the forums for the state/facility your son is assigned to - maybe someone in those threads would have information on who to contact to find out what is going on? As someone else suggested, many times the chaplain is helpful in some of the prisons.

I hope you find out something soon and that whatever happened doesn't delay his release date.

HIPAA is great but sucks so much in times like this. Sense your son is of age hippa protects both him and the prison. There are some very limited releases your son my or may not have signed. Best thing to do is keep calling and hope someone can get you the direct line for the hospital wing, and then see if releases have been signed and if they can even tell you anything. Best of luck. At least they where able to tell you that he is doing okay.
