Default Denied Medical Help_plz Help

My Fiance Is In Redgranite Correctional In Wisconsin. Over The Last Few Months He Has Complained To The Guards About Having Severe Stomach Pain. They Tell Him He's Ok And To Relax. So Finally In November He Falls Out On The Ground And The Gurads Just Flash A Light On Him And Continue Their Walk. His Cell Mate Starting Yelling For Help, But Noone Came For 2 Hours. They Let Him Lay On The Cell Ground And Finally Take Him To Medical Where He Waits For Another 3 To 4hours In Pain Until They Transport Him To The Hospital. He Had An Infection On Hil Gall Ballder And It Had To Be Removed. He Had To Be Stapled After The Surgery And Was Given Direct Orders Of Not To Take Aspirin. The Officers Had This Information And Still Provided Him With Aspirin To Deal With The Pain.

What Can We Do?

He Has Filed A Grievance, But Should He Try To Contact An Attorney? If So Does Anyone Know Who Would Take This Type Of Case In Wisconsin?

I don't know anything about Wisconsin, but my boyfriend has been in solartary for 3 weeks, after being in a fight, where he had been stabbed and I knew something was wrong, I just had a feeling, so i did hire a lawyer, and the lawyer got right in to see him and his wound had been infected, and all the prison peeps would say was he had been seen by thier doctor, and that was good enough...so the lawyer got a court order to get him proper medical attention..took 2 days but today the doctor got in to see him...they never even stiched him...just put a butterfly band aid on it....so today the doctor stiched him....and we have to get another court order for him to go back next week to check him over again, the infection was pretty bad.
Sorry, I didn't mean to go on and on....but I would diffently contact a lawyer, look for one who offers free consults....that's what i did. Hope you can get him the help he needs. Best of Luck!

GET A LAWYER!!!! I was in the WI. DOC also and I too fell out in my cell and it took for me to get out in order to get treatment. I did get to go to Madison a few times in shakles and cuffs only to be given more appointments that I would never see because I was getting out. I was once taken by gaurds and another tome by ambulance to the emergency room with a heart rate of 225 ( the norm being far less). But no insurance and no way to pay I was sent back and told to follow up with "MY" doctor. What a joke! I got out and had heart surgery (Prison Doctor had given me malox) but never thought anyone would listen to me. If I would have known about this site I would have known better. Do him the favor and get him help... If you are in Wisconsin look up on how Michelle Grear (sp) Died in the lunch hall. I happens all the time and nothing is ever done. Get justice for those of us who were to ...dumb to know to do so.
I wish you and your man luck and strength You can help.
