Dateline: San Carlos Medical 8-18-29.

Pill call and temp checks were called at the same time today. The inside of the lobby was PACKED with inmates trying to get medication and temp checks, all at the same time. Only 3 women were wearing masks.

It was absolute chaos complete with shoving and shouting, the little female officer was lost in the shuffle, and could not be heard above the din.

With all the emphasis on handwashing and sanitation, you’d think the medical bathroom would be a model for that. The floor was a mess, no paper towels, and NO SOAP or toilet paper! I’ve seen more sanitary latrines in a 3d world country.

The silver lining?
Two health professionals impressed me, let’s give some applause to RNs Villaverde and Brown who give excellent care to the Carlos women.
